This public art project attempted to introduce an urban myth into the social fabric of Jamaica Queens: a food product that was the mixture of a Chinese and Mexican tradition, invented by a supposed Mexican-Chinese immigrant: a tamal with a fortune inside. While the promotional campaign of the product did exist, the actual food product never materialized on the streets.
