The Unknown Box by steelgohst The Unknown Box by steelgohst
6 months ago ‘The Unknown Box’ was received by the Pyramid Gallery [link] from an anonymous sender. It arrived in the mail without fanfare wrapped in pages from “Al-Wasat”, an Arabic newspaper. Taped to the top of the box was a brief note that said simply:
“Take it, I have lost too much already. But do not be tempted. Sad are only those who understand”
The months of intensive research have made clear the following – that absolutely nothing is known about it. It has no chapter in ‘LeMarchands Dreams’ It has never been auctioned or sold anywhere in the world that we can discover, there are no references to its existence in any of the LeMarchand reference materials that we have, and we have many.
It is however, clearly a LeMarchand piece. Carbon-14 dating places it firmly in the correct time period, the silver ‘gateways’ contain Osmium, a favourite metal of LeMarchands, used in several of his works. Several of its design elements make it instantly recognisable, and yet its past is one of total mystery.
Microscopic analysis of its surface using ultraviolet have turned up minuscule amounts of blood on all of its sides, but other than that it seems to be almost impossibly clean.

News has reached us of a recent killing in Bahrain. The body of a man was found in a small room over an antiques store in Al Muharraq, apparently “shredded and unrecognisable”. Among his meagre possessions in the room was found a photograph of ‘The Unknown Box’ torn and bloodstained, and with the address of the Pyramid gallery scrawled on its back [link] . The condition of the cadaver has made identification impossible, meaning that investigation of the box would appear to have reached a dead end.

Edit - more information has come to light concerning this box and its uses - follow the link for more information - [link]

good find...I can see LeMarchand's hand in this. And Leviathan's heart.

hmm, perhaps this was made, not by Lemarchand, but perhaps another craftsman. we all must agree Lemarchand might be a prodigy, but could he be not alone in his work?
