choice, this is your pic. see arrow. this a great view of evidence of clues under or obscured by the paint. no, dont know what it is yet, just showing you it is there. i just traced a few lines. subtle changes in tone help find the edges.
Huh! Actually the Boston image and the zip code in the flower pushed me to see if this technique works for other images. I have a better one for SF zip code. That 2 is tricky but you can see it's heavy shadow next to it as well.
I see a darkened upside-down 7 just above between the 1 and 2 instead of a 1 to the bottom, 94127 Ingleside Terraces. Nice work!!! It makes me feel that SFSU is where we might see Education, Justice, For all to see, Oh wait! CSU's motto Vox, Veritas, Vita, and its at Holloway? A stone walls door, like a cave? Is that Stonestown I see above SFSU? Hmm...
I was looking at the table with the rose and clock and noticed that the table actually looks like the sundial located in Shakespeare Garden. There's a picture of the sundial under Golden Gate Park in the Wikipedia.
I also think the clock pointing to 6, the rose, and the pearl necklace are all referencing the month of June. The rose and pearl are associated with June.
The face looks similar to the animal carving on the Goddess of the Park totem pole.
It's in the children's playground. Concession stand has iron bar windows. There are three towering trees in front of one of the buildings. There used to be a trolley car in the playground. For trolley cars you have to take a big step up into the car, and a leap off. As for the multiple moons, isn't the bowling green nearby? The moons are images of bowling balls.

I still believe the solution to this is in GGP, and more importantly, in the Music Concourse area. From certain views, many of the clues can be seen from the verse. Francis Scott Key monument, Jack Pershing “Blackjack” Aces high, Stone walls door, Giant pole (FSK monument again), high posts in Japanese Garden (not there anymore). North but first across and steps using her hands and fingers. Fingers arched in a way to resemble stairs. After seeing the other three solves, about 2/3s of the verse lead you to a specific place. I wish we had some high resolution pictures of the rocks behind the woman. Great theories and ideas on here, been a very fun and interesting read. Happy hunting!
That's pretty much symmetrical though. The pronounced shape of her upper eyelids are of interest to me too. We should perhaps simplify "Giant pole + Giant step" to Giant (step-pole). Simple algebra x.y + x.z = x (y +z) = x (z + y)
I need to figure out how to paste a picture, but there is a definite P and H, looks like a tombstone on that rock formation. My issue is there was 2005 reformation of the area, but I am planning a dig next to that fountain. I think the fingers are shaped as as stairs, and the north, but first across is a good measurement.
Chicago - notice the emerald is below the earing on a somewhat green background? I think this indicated that the casque was buried in a grassy area, south of the Loop in Chicago. Cleveland - notice the aquamarine is completely encased in a grey square? This matches the planter box it was found in at the Greek Cultural Gardens.
Boston- notice the peridot is being held on an angle on a black background. This matches a baseball diamond at the site of the Great Molasses Flood.
Honestly the images may even contain the name of the place the casque is buried.
Lets examine this theory:
Chicago - the troll looks an awful lot like President Grant, so Grant Park.
Cleveland - the stone pillars are clearly Greek, so Greek Cultural Gardens.
Boston - the pigs head (Pua) combined with the polo stick for Puopolo Park.
For San Francisco, the Litany of the Jewels describes the pearl as chaste. Who is the most chaste person...the virgin Mary. Next you have a watch or clock on the table...so that gives you time. If you make the argument that it is Mary in Image 1 and you combine the two, you get Mary-time...so Maritime Park!
About the first part with the burial surroundings - that’s actually freaking brilliant. Whether or not it holds we shall see. Looking at the pearl....it gives me all kinds of crazy ideas.
As far as maritime goes, I’ve seen people try to push this rebus a lot. The Litany of Jewels is meant to refer to the city, I think BP was consistent in this. Chaste, in this nuance of poetic verse, is simply meant to mean “pure and unadulterated”, and the clock is to designate the month.
I know it’s fun to come up with this stuff, and I’m going to bet I’ve shot down an idea that’s 100% intentionally placed by Bp or the artist. But I just can’t help but take the artist at his word. We are over complicating things. These puzzles were technically meant for children to be able to enjoy. Everything in the poems can be quite literal. Chicago and Cleveland are EXTREMELY direct once you know where to start.
I couldn’t agree more with this, in keeping this a lot simpler. Her dress is a map of GGP, very sure it is there. Aces high could be “blackjack” or Highway 1. Highway 1 does go north than across. Twain attention could be about 5 dozen different things. Sounds from the sky could be the WWII sirens, or “ bombs bursting in the air”, Sutro Tower radio waves. Verdi statue looks like Twain. Shakespeares bust in the garden, his hands look like the woman’s hands shape. Sun dial in the garden be the table with the clock? I just don’t think drawing right angles and using the Quadratic formula, or JFK magic bullet theory is the right way to approach this.
