Success was sweet for Morag Jones, who found the fifth and final special book sculpture created to celebrate Book Week Scotland by the Mystery Sculptor.
Morag (60) had been on the hunt for sculptures all week and was successful at last to solve the riddle and discover the artwork inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island at the Scottish Seabird Centre, North Berwick.
Five special book sculptures, all inspired by classic Scottish stories, were created by the anonymous artist and hidden in five secret locations throughout Scotland. From Monday to Friday last week, treasure hunters across the country tracked down a new sculpture each day by following clues released at www.scottishbooktrust.com/booksculptures
The new sculptures will be displayed in their finding place for everyone to enjoy. Each of the five successful treasure hunters won their own unique sculpture to take homeand keep.
Morag, a retired teacher from Glasgow, was thrilled to finally find a sculpture: “I found myself becoming increasingly obsessed with the treasure hunt as the week went on and was keen to see one of these magnificent artworks in person.”
