5 paintings, 5 riddles, and 5 golden pieces to find. Challenge accepted!
The event is part of an art exhibition at the 20-21 Visual Arts Center, and it began on Saturday, 18th February. It consists on a treasure hunt in which people have to find 5 gold artefacts that have been hidden in the city of Scunthorpe, England.
To find and keep the artefacts, the museum's visitors have to study five paintings and solve the codes within them.
The five golden protagonists
The artefacts are replicas of others from North Lincolnshire Museum, which were 3D printed, made into wax, and then cast in gold. The replicas are worth at least £1,000 each.
The found ones
The golden train was found by a family from Grimsby in Scunthorpe's central park. The artist, Luke Jerram, said he didn't expect some of the pieces to be found so quickly in the first week:
"I was expecting two or three, something like that. What I did not expect was the response of the public would be so astonishingly positive."
One of golden pieces was found by accident, so its reward will be offered to anyone who is able to solve its code within the "red picture".
