Police in Canada are searching for an elderly woman believed to have pocketed a rock worth $17,500. An ordinary river stone with the words “Love yourself” written on it in black ink. The stone is part of an “interactive” art exhibition by Yoko Ono at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto.
“It’s totally interactive [exhibit], there are some rocks on the ground and people can go up to them and pick them up,” police media officer Gary Long told the Toronto Star. “She just picked it up and walked away with it.”
Calling for information on social media, local police — initially undervaluing the stone at $5,000 — showed the alleged thief, a woman between 55 and 60, wearing a black hat and red scarf.
