New York artist Jamison Ernest made the surprise announcement that he would be extending his gallery show an additional week so that he could give a gift to seven lucky visitors: $77,777 worth of diamonds. Starting on Saturday, every single day, one lucky visitor to the Big Apple will be treated to a treasure. Ernest will hide a single 177-faceted stone each day in a maze. Only seven people will be allowed into the maze at a time, for seven minutes. The whole idea behind this is to help people who face financial crisis. The diamonds were purchased with proceeds from sales of his work so far. About 5,000 people have attended the show. Ernest uses the number seven because, as he explains, the number is the foundation for many systems.
