In a way, I suppose it was, except the artist wasn't human. Your nugget collection will definitely be livened up after adding this honey. I guarantee the gold is a natural occurrence.

Several years past, a friend from Sioux Falls who, like myself was wintering near the snowbird haven of Quartzsite, Arizona persuaded me to help him dig a hole. He was convinced Spanish treasure lay buried just out of town where a certain'sign-post' rock formation had been identified. We dug down five feet excavating a pine box-sized hole.
As on his first attempt, we hit the same impervious rock formation only heavy equipment or blasting could have loosened. We stopped, had a bite of lunch, detected and doused our pit as before, then refilled his hole again. My buddy decided those tricky Spaniards must have dug a horizontal tunnel from another portal and the treasure chamber was some distance below this impenetrable rock formation.I concluded there should be a moral to such a story. Even though you don't think anything's buried there, sometimes it's fun just to help a friend dig a hole.
