    Default Artwork

    Why was this certain portion of the artwork taken out, rotated, and put in with this chapter? That is what I've been asking myself. I haven't come up with an answer yet, but I have made several observations.

    There are several things that look to be hidden in the artwork. I mean the entire "Cowboy" picture. But there are a lot of little hidden things concentrated in this particular section on page 5. Here are some of the things that I see:

    An American Flag
    A Sun
    A Phoenix
    A Cow/Calf/Bull's head
    Tee Pees
    $$$$$ signs
    Arrows (They could be directional or like bow and arrows)
    Clouds
    Plants (They look like corn stalks)
    + + + + (Crosses dotting a field? Headstones? Maybe just cactus?)
    Something that could actually be letters spelling "ZOO" or the numbers "700". This one is hard to tell.

    Does anyone else see anything? Thoughts anyone?

    I'm with you that we need to use the portrait somehow. I've looked just briefly to identify any differences between the picture here, at the beginning, and at the end, but they looked similar to me. My intuition is that there are two complete portraits included so you that can cut one up as a puzzle and reassemble it to make a map or something. Or maybe a zebra.

    I tried cutting one up already...I cut up the squares and rearranged them. I got some things that looked like some scenes, but nothing seemed to be very significant. Perhaps later we will know what to do with it.

    Default symbols

    There are the symbols for male and female next to the cowboy. If you cover up half his face it is as though there are two different people (maybe four). Perhaps it is "good and evil" or left and right or east and west? Just thinking out loud.

    I would really like to know which came first, the painting or the hunt?

    Hi Cjones,

    I got 19 capitol letters. They are:
    GZEONEBFKOIADWMAAYJ

    So far, no... I haven't come up with anything. Perhaps a simple substitution cipher could be tried. I remember looking at this some time ago and guessed it was maybe a topo map. But looking at the shape of the artwork, I thought it looked like maybe Greenville county, South Carolina. I didn't say anything cuz I thought it was just wrong. The shape just looked right.

    There is also a shadow of a bird in flight to the left of the drawing. There appears to be writing on it. Looks like an O or something. Anyone see it?
