      I know they were taken off the ship by Andrew, and sent to storage soewhere, but from there on, I have no idea...

          I especially love the moment when they turn on the lights of FRANCE and turn off the lights in the room!

          What a special moment...

          Now, back to my question, does anyone remember or know what happened to the NORWAY letters...?

          I remember seeing an image with them on an auction site (could it have been finn.no? ) where they were laid out for sale... had they at that time been brought to Norway (the country) or were those images taken in India... I have lost contact with MR. Shaw, and there are absolutely no indication on where they ended up...

            I have seen the letters in Norway.
            Unfortunately this was before I started to have a camera in my bag, so no pictures.
            It was at the storehouse of mr. Shaw`s business partner.
            So the letters has been in Norway. Where they are now, I don't know.
            I will do some investigation next week.

                This place is located at Vestfossen, just south of Hokksund vest of Drammen....

                I tried calling them, because the article is dated in May 2009 (almost two years ago) but they are closed for the winter and won't reopen again before May 2011.

                I would like to learn where these letters are now, or whether they are still on display...

                But also, we must remember, these are the letters from just one side of the ship.... the question is then, was both sets saved from the Norway?

                  I have contacted the Contempoarary Artist who purchased the letters, and hopefully, he will be able to shine some more details on the whereabouts of these items now.

                      The contemporary artist Morten Viskum has replied back to us: details of what happened to the letters can be found on the main page: "Collections"
