|Spoiler: The old man asks the Princess to retrieve the statue from the Castle in exchange for the return of her friends.|
This statue is about three feet tall. It is made of gold, depicting a lion standing on its hind legs, baring its claws. The statue's eyes consist of two emeralds, the teeth are made of ivory. It must be worth a fortune...
The problem is, the statue is rather big and heavy. It is going to be difficult to hide it.
