OriginEdit

The woman in the picture was Anna Christina Olson, a neighbor of Andrew Wyeth. He was inspired to paint the painting after he saw her crawling through a field one day. She suffered from Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, an inherited neurological disorder with symptoms similar to polio; loss of muscle tissue, paralysis, and loss of sensation. While Olson was the inspiration, Wyeth's wife posed for much of the painting as Olson was into her fifties at the time he created the piece.

EffectsEdit

If one feels helpless while looking at the painting at a distance of five feet than the user will be sucked into the painting. If the user stays for too long within the painting for too long they will develop symptoms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, which include paralysis, and loss of touch sensations throughout the body. Eventually the user will be unable to move and will fade away into the painting.

To neutralize the artifact the painting can either be splashed with neutralizer or the victim must reach the house on the hill. Once either occurs the victims will be spat back out.

CollectionEdit

Hugo collected the painting from the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It was part of a large tag and bag artifact collection hunt at the Museum.
