​OriginEdit

Frances Glessner Lee is known as the "mother of forensic science". She was famous for bulding incredibly detailed and accruate minatiure dioramas, and for her deep interest in crime solving and investigation. In the 1940s and 50s, she created 18 dioramas, known as the "Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death", that were representations of actual crimes used to teach people to look for details in actual murder cases. Each miniature was based on an actual crime scene, and Lee even visited autopsies to ensure the utmost accuracy of her creations. To this day, the dioramas are used to teach forensic seminars.

​EffectsEdit

When the loupe is looked through, the viewer will see their surroundings from a 3rd person prespective, and everything will take the appearance of a constructed minature diorama (people will look like dolls, blood wll look like paint, and so on). Users are able to zoom in wherever they want, in order to observe very minor details. As such, this artifact is extremely useful for identifying the cause of a crime more easily.
