Creating a Dead Gift and offering it to the memory of a dead person connects the living person to the greatness of the dead person. Because the dead are not able to receive the Dead Gifts, Authority Office collects and exhibits the Dead Gifts on behalf of Gwin Von Pellets, Mud Scab and Brian.What is the value of these undelivered Dead Gifts? Authority Office believes that Dead Gifts radiate the original spirit of Gwin, Mud and Brian. These beautiful objects are relics worthy of veneration. During their lifetimes, Gwin, Mud and Brian faced challenge and tragedy, and in the end, they gloriously triumphed. The memory of the Authority Office heroes provides an undying message of hope and perseverance. The exhibition of Dead Gifts invites the public to participate in the celebration of this glorious legend.
