crosswordNURNBERG , Germany – An elderly German woman was questioned by police after filling in blank spaces on a crossword puzzle that was being displayed as a work of art at a local museum.

The BBC reports that the 91-year-old woman used a ballpoint pen to write on the work of art titled “Reading-work-piece” by avant garde artist Arthur Koepcke during a senior citizens tour to Nuremberg’s Neues Museum.

The crossword puzzle-themed piece of art from 1965 features the phrase “insert words” which the woman understood as instructions.

“The lady told us she had taken the notes as an invitation to complete the crossword,” a police spokesman told The Telegraph.  More
