The Relic

At first, we couldn’t see what it was. I mean, with all this damn fog you couldn’t see much at all…

But, as we got closer, what was just a dark blurry form started to take shape. Still, it took us forever to get close enough to appreciate the thing for real.

God, was it old! There was some extensive natural damage, whole parts of the structure missing here and there. One side looked like chewed on by some huge mechanical beast, tooth marks still clearly visible after all these years.

There could be no mistake  – it was what we have looked for all along. It was The Relic.

The Ugly Booch of Sty

When, back in 1904, this sculpture had been accidentally excavated in some god-forgotten region of Sahara, it has immediately been affectionately named the Ugly Booch of Sty or simply Sty.

What this artifact depicts is anyone’s guess although some may say it looks like a pig alien or perhaps an alien pig.

Whatever it was supposed to be we will, probably, never know – the precious object was stolen during the Great Golden Pumpkin robbery of 1931 and has never been seen again.
