Olmec Wooden Plank Fragment
This prop wooden map fragment was custom-made by the production for use by various actors, including Nicolas Cage as "Ben Gates". The prop is made of resin and detailed to look like a broken off section of an ancient map along with a small section of fishing line still attached from filming. Hidden in the Resolute Desk of the Queen's Study in Buckingham Palace, this piece of prop “petrified wood” is inscribed with the lost language of an ancient Mexican civilization, and represents half of a clue to the location of the legendary city of gold Cibola.
