The latest Kryptos clue from the sculptor Sanborn is that letters 64-69 NYPVTT in part 4 encode the text BERLIN.
You ask if there might be a steganographic pictorial representation somewhere that could provide a clue to this algorithm.
The author Dan Brown who made a lot of money off his best seller "The Davinci code" mentioned the Kryptos puzzle in the Novel. Seems to be in the
same esoteric Renaissance context that pervades the rest of the book. Sanborn feels the inclusion in Browns book may have cheapened the Kryptos
sculpture solution somehow.
If the Kryptos sculpture could be defined as a Renaissance work then that does help explain it. There are so many art works that could be defined
as/or have elements pertaining too the Renaissance though. Even more recent artists like Van Gogh or even Salvadore Dali have works that fall into
Certainly if the Kryptos sculpture parallels some earlier renaissance work a connection might be made.
Da Vinci was a classic Renaissance painter, but did he paint anything that would help us specifically transform the encrypted letters 64-69 NYPVTT in
Kryptos part 4 back to the plain text letters BERLIN?
On another ATS thread they found some hidden letters and numbers in Da Vincis' Mona Lisa, but no one in the thread mentioned the Kryptos puzzle
K4 is different than the prior three parts so we need to find the bridge that connects it.
There are lots of math conversions in the music world, beats, measures, octal representation etc. maybe there are clues to be found there?
