    This puts things into perspective.

    Some images I'm too lazy to explain at the moment,

    Okay, still feeling lazy here, but still I should try to explain what I can.

    Fifteen rows down to the ground,
    a the literal definition of the word 'row' is 'a multiple of things which are roughly in a straight line', "things" in this case can be paces.

    In the middle of twenty-one,
    this is left open to qualification, and so it's possible to argue that the casque location has to do with the measures 15 and 21 paces.

    The namesakes meeting / Near this site,
    my focus is the Honduras/Central America statue of Morazan. Given that the Americas are North/Central/South, and the fact that they are the namesake of Amerigo Vespucci, it's possible that this Central American figure represents the meeting or middle of where North and South meet.

    Gnomes admire / Fays delight,
    I have a strong feeling that "admire" here means "to look up to", and Morazan is a very tall figure on his pedestal. A second reason for gnomes and fays and their delight may have to do with the Basin street neutral ground being the "Gardens of the Americas" city art installation from 1957.

    The word PRESERVATION is set in the image in such a way that the letter V is positioned precisely at the 12 where long and short hands point. I think the V is for Vespucci.

    There's a major playing of cultural influences here. Firstly, this is the jewel of the France Fair Folk and while it makes sense that King Louis XII could be a factor in the puzzle. Then there's this Dixieland Jazz feel to the puzzle with the Louis Armstrong and Preservation references. Then there's the Sarmiento of Argentina quote about St. Charles and how it looks like Italy's St. Peters Basillica. My proposal to locate the casque in a Latin American setting while citing an Italian explorer and then Bergamini Tomb No. 12, also Italian, makes this even more convoluted.

    I think there's a lot going on with this puzzle.

    I should explain this. I think the idea behind putting some of the caduceus shape and the flying figure is to represent a famous Italian sculpture of Hermes/Mercury, which has a lot to do with the dead and commerce (where jewels abound?). I think this choice fits the setting of the St. Louis Cemetery No.1 very well.

    Shouldn't be too difficult to locate (assuming the cache is still there):


    1. Need 5 or 6 men with NewOrleans street workers safety vests and 5 yellow hard hats.
    2. Three long handled shovels three of the men can lean on. They need to know how to use them if anything is found.
    3. One ground-penetrating radar scanner mounted on lawn mower base (1 man to push slowly across suspected area)
    4. One man with pencil, clipboard, and tablet ( man to take notes of scanner results)
    5. Beat up work truck, with illegible markings.
    6. Sixth man in semi-pressed slacks and white shirt - wearing white hard hat... walking around looking important.


    OH, and a couple cases of beer for the crew when the work is all done.


    Shouldn't take anytime at all to clear this one......
    Greetings from the Mississippi Gulf Coast
