(Before It's News)

‘Jacob’s Dream’ with Jacob’s ladder (1660-1665) by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.

Jacob’s Ladder is the common term (particularly in the West) used to describe a bridge that connects Heaven and Earth.

Today, some would argue the ladder symbol reflects ancient knowledge of DNA as well.
