Stone Head is a fantastic artifact. It definitely looks like the head from a statue. I gave it a 9.

I gave it an 8. I wouldn't exactly call it "the best artifact on the show," but it was still really nice looking. And I would've taken this artifact a little more seriously if it were in Medusa's Lair instead of the Swamp. Very top quality artifact sure, but not "the absolute greatest."

Yeah, I can't believe the producers missed a chance of putting the Stone Head in Medusa's Lair. That would've been the most obvious placement on the show. Also, Tony wouldn't have to worry about completing that room either. But yeah, it was a good looking artifact but definitely not the best though. I have seen some people hate on it in the past though, which is why I gave it some love. I guess they hate the artifact due to the bad temple run?

Or they don't like that it's just some well.... stone head. But I like the artifact too. At least it wasn't as creepy as say, the Shriveled Hand. :shock: And the Stone Head definitely should've been put in Medusa's Lair. Then we wouldn't have seen Tony waste a full minute in one room. Unless he somehow managed to screw up another room. O_O

I gave Jean Lafitte a 2. Sorry, but most of the Map artifacts were lame. I mean they were just some folded up piece of paper. This one was even more lame because it was reused from the Map to the Lost Gold Mine episode. And why do we need two Treasure Map artifacts from the same day? One of the laziest artifacts ever on the show. :roll:

I gave it a 4. It just looks like a temple game prop.

I gave it a 5 for looking exactly like it's supposed to. It's a treasure map. It would be silly to expect much more than this.

Yet somehow the production crew is recycling artifacts when it's still early on in the season? I mean, a map is a map, but they could've gotten another prop for it. Even Blackbeard's Treasure Map used a different prop.

Oh and I agree. Though that map probably would have still looked like this, which would have sort of made it pointless.

Jean Lafitte finishes with a 3.40.   :oops:

I gave the Dried Apple Half a 6. I have to admit that this artifact is pretty absurd. I mean how could an Apple exist that long in the temple? It would be more a little more than just dried up. :shock: As absurd the artifact is, I didn't give it a low score because it actually relates to the legend quite well. After all, William Tell is memorable for shooting an apple off his son's head. But did they really need to associate a dried up apple with him though? That is taking the legend too literally. <_< I do like the details of the apple though. Overall, the concept of this artifact was definitely ridiculous. But it fits with the legend well and I like the design of it.  ;)

I also gave it a 6. The concept of dried up food is lame, but it was a neat looking artifact.

I gave the War Fan an 8. This was a good artifact and actually looks like something they would use in China during that time period. I also like the little details like the Chinese writing on it too. Plus, the name of the artifact is awesome too. I think it could've used a little more details, but looks much better than I thought it would look like. If it was Season 1, it would probably look like it was made in an Elementary school class room.  :roll:
