The Litomyšl locals whisper to each other: “The Gawker was heard saying that the Goblins from Portmoneum are jealous of his three dimensions. Why do they only have to make do with two?” That is why they are plotting to try and fly through the three-dimensional space around here, and they've already hatched a plan I hear! In the winding smoke the Goblins from the paintings will shake hands with the people who are spiritually connected with them. A team of artists and scientists are trying to figure out how to capture this moment, invisible to mere mortals' eyes, and then show it to the visitors arriving at night. Until 29th October, fragments of their research can be seen in the garden.
