I hate to do this, but next to go is The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor. The idea of this artifact was interesting, but in the end, it's just a pillow.

Missing the the final two is the Jewel-Encrusted Egg. It was definitely a beautifully designed artifact and one of the most creative on the show. It had some good details and definitely could be a contender for the best looking artifact. Compared to the remaining artifacts, an egg is kind of silly. But it was still awesome to look at.

And now we are at our final two! I will set up the details in the next post. ;)

3x38 - The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie

I set the poll for 24 hours. You can change your votes between the 24 hour window, but the winner won't be decided until that is up. For reference, here is our final two artifacts.

The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza


The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie


May the best artifact win! I will reveal my vote once the poll closes. ;)

Not to mention, the top 3 artifacts were produced on the same day. It tells you a lot on how much of an effort the producers put into the artifact designs that day. ;)

Makes you wonder how much detail they'd expend if there was a Season 4, huh? :)

I'm sure Season 4 would have some extremely detailed, very real looking artifacts. We'd probably see more jeweled/golden looking artifacts, much like what we saw on the last day of Season 3.

And the results are in! It looks like our winner is the Good-Luck Watch!

I voted for the Good-Luck Watch as the best artifact on the show. Out of all the artifacts on the show, this is the one that looked the best IMO. The details of the Watch are beautifully designed. The producers did a really good job handling it. When I first heard about this episode, I thought the design would be lame. Plus, I have to give credit for the producers for using an actual clock for the Watch. I thought that the clock would be painted on, but I am glad that I was wrong. And I liked the heart-shaped design too.

The Jeweled Scabbard looked great also. I love the little bits of jewelry on it as well as the design of the Scabbard. Compared to the Watch though, it didn't have the best details.

I just want to say thanks to everyone who took their time to vote. I know the elimination threads aren't very popular anymore, but I thought if I did something totally different for once then it would get more feedback. And I am glad that many different people voted too instead of the same 3 people. This one was fun and the outcome was something different.  :mrred:

Here are the final results:

The Top 25:
#1. The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
#2. The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza

#3. The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
#4. The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
#5. The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl
#6. The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
#7. The Missing Eye of David
#8. The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon
#9. The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak
#10. The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd
#11. The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta

#12. The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
#13: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask

#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein
#17: The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass
#18: The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson
#19: The Ivory Elephant of Scheherazade
#20: The Broken Wing of Icarus
#21: The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
#22: The Ruby Earring of Benzibab
#23: The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba

I am going to try the personal rankings for this one.

The Top 25:
#1. The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie (Good, this is the one I wanted to win)
#2. The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza (One lower, I am not sure why I voted this over the Jewel-Encrusted Egg)
#3. The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great (One higher)
#4. The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor (One lower)
#5. The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl (One higher, love the detail of the Portrait even if the naked girl is creepy)
#6. The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid (Good, I like the details of the boots and are much better than the Moccasins of Geronimo)
#7. The Missing Eye of David (Good, this was very detailed and didn't look lame at all)
#8. The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon (Good, looked like a hat Napoleon would wear)
#9. The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak (Good)
#10. The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd (Good)
#11. The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta (A little lower, the Lion head looks a little lame)
#12. The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa (Good, even though this was a reused prop from the Golden Idols/Treasure Room. It still looked pretty neat)
#13: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask (A little lower. Interesting artifact, too dark to see)
#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun  (A little higher, I liked the details of it.)
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata (Good)
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein (Good, the frame of the Portrait was ugly and it was not even Holbein in the painting. The Priceless Portrait was much better)
#17: The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass (Much lower, it was so boring)
#18: The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson (good)
#19: The Ivory Elephant of Scheherazade (good)
#20: The Broken Wing of Icarus (A little lower, it was just random feathers on a cardboard piece)
#21: The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain (Much higher. I liked the size of the Helmet and the details of it)
#22: The Ruby Earring of Benzibab (Good. Compared to the other artifacts that day, this one looked a little silly)
#23: The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba (Good, a golden horse is a weird choice to make an artifact)
#24: The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen (A little higher)
#25: The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl (A little higher. It was pretty detailed despite the small size)

I voted for Jeweled Scabbard because it looked beautiful. Although the Good-Luck Watch looked very nice as well. Good winner I guess.

I personally wanted Catherine the Great to win. Now THAT was a beautiful looking artifact. Good Luck Watch was my second choice.
