OriginEdit

Frederic Edwin Church was a landscape painter and central figure in the Hudson River School. His landscapes often featured mountains, waterfalls and sunsets, along with icebergs, aurorae and jungles he personally saw on his trips to the Arctic and South America. He specifically traveled to the South American jungle because of the beautiful accounts he read from explorer Alexander von Humboldt. Some of the paintings of his journey include Cayambe, The Heart of the Andes and Cotopaxi. Combining his forest adventures with his art education, he displayed The Heart of the Andes as a window into the jungle, complete with window frame and curtains. He later sold the painting for $10,000, the highest price paid at the time for the work of a living American artist.

EffectsEdit

All that remains of Church’s exhibit, the curtains can change the amount of light, precipitation and dust in the sky. This can cause spectacular sunsets, aurorae, cloud formations and other visual phenomena. Shaking the curtains can quickly change the sky, but the change itself will not be up to the user.
