I thought about this for a while and decided to just go ahead and post it because I am not traveling to any of these sites for a cheap $1,000 stone and risk getting arrested for digging in or near a park. It's just not worth it. So I will drop this one here and maybe drop a few more I think I may possibly have solved.
Between two arms extended.... the woman's arms (and the wings) represent the unusual stairs that lead up to the beach walkway. (most people incorrectly think arms are cannons) Below the bar that binds, Embedded in the sand.... You see the bars binding the two sides of the steps. The cast should be buried directly below the bars that bind. Beside the long palm's shadow... her palms and arms intersect and make a small version of the stairway (look at her arms and her arms shadows). The woman's legs represent where the cast is buried. Below the bars that bind. Her fingers are the bars. The butterfly wings in the image represent the unusual stairs on either side of the bars that bind the stairs. Her legs are in the center of the stairs, and buried in the sand. The cast should be there.
That spot has been considered and discussed multiple times on Q4T and probed entirely at least once before. Unfortunately many members have removed their posts during last few years and their work is lost. One observation; since Canuck's mentioning of the lions at 9 E Battery, perhaps across the street could be an area of interest. I don't know if that patch has ever been probed.
Ok, I will take you word for it. That was just what made sense and that's where I would have buried it. You don't want to bury anything inside a historical park if at all possible. So across the street from a park makes the most sense. I'm posting my solution for New Orleans next.

Yeah, I am interested in the stairs as well, just as choice said it would be the next set North of the ones in your solve. If you look inside the jewel toward the top half, there are tiers in there that very well could represent stairs. It’s worth probing as it’s a small area that should be easy to either prove or disprove. Apparently WPG is hard digging, whereas the area across the street historically has been sand, just a little further north there is a small white sand beach. I agree with not wanting to bury the casques in historical parks, but also keep in mind some of the burial sites might not have been deemed that way 40 years ago. WPG would be historical in either time frame, some of the other parks in other cities perhaps not.
Yes, I would agree if the other stairs in my guess have already shown no result. I didn't realize there were several more of those same odd looking stairs up that side of the street. So anything that would clue on one of those to probe would be worth it. And less risky to probe probably, since they aren't so wide open to people looking from the park.
I see the Lions you referred to, they are all around the house. Sure could be a sign.

Yes and the angle of the set of stairs would roughly give you a 4 o’clock to work with. I also think there is some resemblance between the arch under the stairs and the arch in the “skull” in the image. The one large palm tree outside 9 E Battery would cast a shadow beside the centre of the stairs. Definitely would be a good spot to probe/dig as there are image and verse matches within view. From the jewel I’m picking up 3 things...7.3 reference to the earthquake, the base of the Confederate Defenders Monument, and tiers that resemble stairs. You have all 3 covered if you are standing at the centre of that set of stairs.
love the blur. here ya go. bottom left and middle left. look thru the remaining lines at the deliberate shapes. look at scar across lion forehead. that huge lump on the helmet. i am still working things out but the clues are apparent. onward....H N Y
added a few more items. claw foot under the eye? the whole nose looks like a goblet shape, black stem. OR, is this a flower bud about to open.....perhaps rendered in the wrought iron of the bar that binds? :-).

Hi Guys, I'm new on the site but have been working on the 9 remaining puzzles for a few months. I wanted to add a few things, I think the pear in the image represents the Patriots Point Golf Links, look at an aerial view and you'll see what I mean. The pear in the image is actually sitting on a golf tee. I believe the pear looks like a Bartlett pear and William Bartlett painted a picture of the battery back in the 1800's. I also have my focus on the stairs for several reasons: 1. the clue about Edwin and Edwina (Twins-Twin Stairs) 2. The clue on the eighth a scene (the top of the stairs is the eighth step from either side) 3. If you rearrange the mouth image and place the flat stone at the top, the 6 steps down each side, and the large triangles as the base steps, it is the stairs. 4. The flower in the image is the long palm, if you look close you'll see the shadow of it curving away, toward the mouth image (the stairs). 5. just above the mouth are the star and stripes which represent the 2 arms extended (Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie), clearly visible from the eighth step. 6. The two eyes above the mouth are the greek letter Theta (the eighth letter of the greek alphabet), shown double as the eighth is accessible from either side of the double stairs.
