Revelation tells us that there is a Temple of God in Heaven, and that in that Temple is the Ark of his testament.
Revelation 11:19 KJV
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
God directed Moses twice to make sure that he built the Tabernacle after the pattern God had shown him on the Mountain.
Exodus 25:9 KJV
According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
Exodus 25:40 KJV
And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the Mount.
The word translated here as pattern could have just as easily been translated model.
H8403 תַּבנִיתּ tabniyth (tab-neeth') n-f.
2. (by implication) a model, resemblance
KJV: figure, form, likeness, pattern, similitude.
Are there any theological suppositions about this?
