OriginEdit

Auguste Rodin was a sculptor whose most famous works include The Thinker and The Kiss. Rodin's most original work departed from traditional themes of mythology and allegory, modeled the human body with realism, and celebrated individual character and physicality. Although initially criticized in his early days, he later became known as a reputable artist, and his sculptures remain some of the best known today outside of the visual arts community.

Collection Edit

It was recovered after it killed the director of the Musée Rodin, who was revealed to have been cheating on his wife with several other women and was participating in art fraud.

EffectsEdit

When in the presence of original sin, the door becomes an almost literal door to Hell. Opening with the sound of heavy stone, from the wall of fire inside the gateway a massive hand of flames reaches out and grabs the offender, incinerating them to the bone. It only activates when exposed to a significant sin, including murder, larceny, adultery and corruption. It will also only target a single person at a time, which had allowed it to safely remain on display in the Musée Rodin for many years.

It is kept chained shut to prevent any repeat incidents.
