You know what I hate? When you think an 8 letter inscription on a monument will crack the Holy Grail Code but it turns out to be friggin 19th century graffiti. I really friggin hate that! The inscription ‘OUOSVAVV’ on Sherpherd’s Monument in Great Haywood, England, lies below a relief copy of Nicolas Poussin’s painting, the Shepherds of Arcadia.It has long been thought Poussin (a member of the Priory of Sion) had left hidden messages in the painting, like where the hell the Holy Grail is stashed. So it was only natural that when the inscription ‘OUOSVAVV’ (the Shugborough Code) appeared under the 1763 monument many thought it was a big clue. Hmm, no. A British researcher has poured a huge bucket of cement over that one, claiming it was added in the 1800’s by, for or in memorial of George Adams (the monument sculptor’s nephew) and his wife Mary , aka Viscount Anson and Mary Vernon-Venables (V.A.V.V.). Bummer!
