Pit your detective skills against our Senior Detective Mystery; Operation: Terracotta.
This most recent Senior Detective Mystery revolves around the shocking theft of a miniature "Standing Archer" Terracotta Warrior. This statue was being displayed at Te Papa Tongawera, when it was deviously swapped for an elaborate forgery. The real statue was found in a Petone warehouse, about to be shipped out of the country and sold on the black market.
