I guess it’s always good to keep a sense of humor about life and the challenges we come across, which kind of made me smile when I read that the Munch Museum is selling a board game about the theft of Edvard Munch’s The Scream painting. One could either sit and cry about the great loss or lighten up and possibly even make a few extra dollars from it all.
Scream robbery is fair game for Munch Museum
“Players of The Mystery of the Scream, a game aimed at the family market, must hunt down the robber before he reaches a criminal paradise. “It is pure fiction, so it is fun,” the museum’s head of marketing, Jorunn Christoffersen, told Norwegian radio NRK.” Guardian Arts
“I was walking along a path with two friends.. the sun was setting.. suddenly the sky turned blood red.. I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence.. there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city.. my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety.. and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.” Edvard Munch about the Scream.
