The Archaeological Sculpture Contest!

Recommended Posts


The archaeologists at the spawn museum have been seeking to expand upon their collections and include several pieces in the exterior gardens to become part of spawn history.


How it works

We are accepting new sculptures to fill up the 8 plots at spawn. Your submissions can be built anywhere on the map that you have permission to build within but ideally your builds will be at your settlements.

We’re looking for sculptures that represent either your settlement or are in the theme of archaeology to be copied and replicated at one of the eight spawn plots. Your submission may become a part of spawn forever!

After 2nd July, the padmins will review all sculptures and decide on winners within that same week. For any submissions that do not win but we really enjoy, we will be issuing Runner Up prize boxes.

For every sculpture, at a maximum of one per town (even if there are many submissions from a single town) we will issue an easy sign that will encourage visitors to explore, to receive a unique item for visiting your settlement. We will also set up a category on the deadmap to easily find all of these unique signs for those who wish to visit all of the sculptures!


  1. Your build must be a sculpture representing your settlement or in the theme of archaeology!
  2. Your build dimensions must fit within 19w x 15d x 33h.
  3. Your build submission(s) must be started after this event is announced.
  4. Submissions are being accepted between this post going up and 2nd July.
  5. Once completed, please “/mail send barlimore My submission is at X:__ Y:__ Z:__.” If you want to explain anything about your submission or give it a name too, that’d be lovely to hear also!
    1. Padmins will then document all submissions.
  6. Multiple submissions may be submitted per person, including joint submissions.
  7. For joint submissions, we will issue any prizes to the person with the most edits.
  8. We will be looking for 8 unique winners.


Winners (8 up for grabs for 8 different submissions!)

All winners will have copies of their submissions pasted in at spawn.


  1. Diamond Blocks = 16
  2. Diamond Boots - Feather Falling V, Fire Protection V & Mending.
  3. Fragment of Amber = 64
  4. Gravel = 9 stacks
  5. Nether Quartz Ore = 4 stacks
  6. Sand = 9 stacks
  7. Gold Axe (decorative enchants and name).

We are being a little more relaxed on this - one block over won't hurt. The width in particular is something we do have more room for at spawn.

Submissions so far are looking great, keep them coming!

Thank you to everyone who participated! We received only 10 submissions for a total of 8 winning spots, so we have decided to make an additional two plots and include everyone who participated as a winner!

Each sculpture has an easy sign added to it out in the world so that you can receive your token of recognition for visiting. Each sculpture is worth visiting not only for themselves but for the existing builds created in the area too! All of these sculptures will be listed on the deadmap soon but all coordinates exist at the East side of spawn in the trophy wing located at 52, 24. All winners should head to these coordinates in spawn (as mailed too) to receive your prize.
