Daily Question – 38

Two views of same thing. What it is? Where it is?

The Shrine of the Three Kings, who were also known as the Three Wise Men or the Magi. It can be found in the famous Cologne Cathedral. In the front view, at the bottom, you can clearly see the Three Kings offering their gifts to the infant Jesus.

Given that, it was fairly surprising that only two people managed to crack it – Thomas Masun and vijaysarathy. Well done, both of you!

The two of them were also the only people to get all seven right this week. And submitting the answer quicker on more occasions and dethroning the defending champ was vijaysarathy. It’s a huge relief for all of us as we feel continued success might have gone to young Thomas’ head. So, presenting the third QFI Chennai Super King – vijaysarathy.

  1. Dear Uncle:

    This is the golden casket containing the relics of Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, the three magi who visited the baby Christ with gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

    (“Myrrh? What’s that?”
    “It’s a type of balm.”
    “A bomb? What’re you bringing him a bomb for?”)

    When I was in Cologne, I got out of the train station, and looming up there right in front of me was the Cologne Cathedral. I went inside and hung around for a bit, long enough to see this. Then I left, saw a street music performance, and got a beer.

    Kind regards,
    Thomas Masun
