Hidden information? / The incomplete 5

The incomplete 5

In Orffyreus` portrait we see what could be a very obvious hint at the number 5. The completion also confirms a particular method. This "incomplete 5" was first anounced and published by John Collins.

Here the 5 has been completed:

But is this all? If we think a little harder about it, it really makes no sense! Almost anybody can tell that it is a 5. If Orffyreus was a genius, hiding the biggest secret in history, this is one of the "dullest" "codes" I have ever seen. There has to be something else to "the incomplete 5". Something else than the obvious "5" has to be hidden in plain sight. Why can't we see it?
