Origin[edit | edit source]

Pygmalion was an ancient Greek sculptor and vocal misogynist. As punishment, Aphrodite cursed him to fall in love with his own sculpture. Eventually he became so enamored with his creation that he recanted and begged the gods to bring her to life. His request was granted, and he named her Galatea.

Effects[edit | edit source]

After Pygmalion died, his wife shortly after turned to clay and crumbled. Her remains were placed in an amphora that told her story.

When a pinch of the clay dust inside the amphora is sprinkled onto wet clay, the clay will mold itself into whatever object the user desires. Afterword his/her fingers will smell like clay for a while.

Warning: Exposing replicas to neutralizer will cause them to crumble into clay.
