This is the original Mixed Media art by Neville Dear.

Captain William Thompson organises the loading of a gold Madonna and much other treasure on board his ship the Mary Dear. He was supposed to be helping the Spanish official of Lima safeguard the treasures but soon became as gold crazed as his crew. They killed the guards and buried the treasure - unfound to this day on the Cocos Island.

This all happened in 1821/2 and he was the third "pirate" to conceal treasure on the island and never be able to collect the ill-gotten gains.

Original art from Look and Learn issue 572 30th December 1972.
