OriginEdit

Bertel Thorvaldsen was poised at the forefront of the early Neoclassical era, imparting the simplistic and clean geometry found in ancient Greek and Roman sculptures upon his own creations. Hailed as a Danish national hero, Thorvaldsen sculpted for many clients across Europe. Just the allure of sharp details and lifelike faces etched into pristine marble attracted patrons. Accurate sculptures for mythological, religious and other popular figures such as Copernicus dotted Europe, keeping his workshop continually busy.

EffectsEdit

Allows user to strike awe into onlookers when posing in a classical dominant stance. Poses that show confidence such as arms resting upon the hips, back straight and head held high will make viewers just goggle over what they perceive as near perfection.

Tracing faintly over designs turns their surface complexion into marble. Etching directly into the subject directly transforms the area into mineral, regardless of material.

CollectionEdit

The chisel was originally collected by Warehouse 12 agent Samuel Dexter. En route to delivery, he was captured and killed by occult leader Colin Moriarty. Several weeks later, Moriarty was apprehended for bronzing and the chisel was recollected.
