OriginEdit

Georges-Pierre Seurat painted his masterpiece “Bathers at Asnieres" in 1884 with oil, depicting bathers relaxing along an idyllic Parisian riverside. Seurat based the landscape on the more well off areas of Asnières and Courbevoi rather than the poorer slums he lived in. To avoid any underlying social metaphor, Seurat purposely made every face hidden or in profile, obscuring any indicator of class. He did however make subtle indications to the scene occurring in a heat wave. The trees in the background appear to look soft and fuzzier, while the river’s surface seems to shimmer from the sunlight.

EffectsEdit

Placing near a source of heat and water will activate a heat wave originating from the painting. It will make all caught in the affect feel tired, sleepy, and make them just stop moving to relax. Tranquility will fill the area and nobody will be able to feel angry or anxious. However, those very same people will experience prosopamnesia and be unable to recognize faces. Distinct features on all people they see will just be a blur they cannot recognize.
