The Da Vinci Code - Quest Solution (20 of 24)

I hope everybody is alive and well after Cinco de Mayo. It has been extreamly busy and I haven't been able to put enough time into the last few posts. I am hoping that I will be able to conclude these final posts with as much vigor and energy as I had when this all started 20 days ago.

Thanks goes to all of you who have participated in the fun by sharing your comments and solutions throughout the challenges. We are getting closer as there only 4 more puzzles left after today. I am going to make some comments about the final days of this challenge that I think everyone will be interested to read, so visit again tomorrow to see how we are going to conclude these 24 days together.

The trick to today's restoration challenge is to work from the inside out leaving a few of the outer pieces to save you at the end since they are all clumped in the middle.

My question after I restored the painting was:

"Leonardo da Vinci's painting of The Adoration of the Magi hangs in the Royal Uffizi Gallery in Florence.What is the catalogue number in the 1890 catalogue of the museum?" 1252. The exact link for my answer was on this page. In general, you can try this link from zGerman (see comments) to find your answer.

Post your solution to the 20th challenge in the comments below this post.

Well, UI know the answer, but not it's correct form and google books, when I've found what I need, said the page is restricted and didn't let me in, saying that there are no results... So - I'm out I guess, until someone piosts answer to this question...

after 3 painting attempts...
I got the question about "divided by tons"

 
At 5/06/2006 12:42 PM, Blogger Elizabeth said...

I also had the question about the "words divided by tons" in the "numismatic chronicles" but why is it when you search for it on google books, it says there isn't such phrase. I also tried searching for the answer "hoc opvs dei" and it wasn't there.

imthedarkcyde, could you tell me what search terms you used to find the answer to the "divided by tons" question? I had that one too, and like the other person here, Google Book Search gave me a link to Numismatics Chronicle, but it said "Sorry, this page's content is restricted."

The answer to the 'decidedly the florentine is prepared for what' answer is 'emergencies' (put three terms into google book search

Hi All,

New to this board. I searched for hours regarding the Tons Divided question and could not find the answer... SO far I have been able to solve all the puzzles without assistance...(they were pretty easy) however the last clue REALLY stumped me… Conrats to the person that knew that answer. I suspect the last 4 days are going to be ultra hard.

cheers

I must be having issues today b/c I keep on getting the error, "There are no more valid pair" but I am doing it the same as the past puzzles. Anyone have a clue as to what I am doing wrong?

On all of the restoration puzzles, I get to the dialog box saying "I have restored the work of art" ( words to that effect) - but the dialog box just stays there - this takes DAYS!I load a new puzzle & it happens all over again. I never get the mystery question right away - am I the only one? Any idea how to solve the problem?
