OriginEdit

Grinling Gibbons (1648-1721) was a Dutch-British sculptor and wood carver known for his decorative woodwork. His accolades as a carver include work in the royal apartments of Windsor Castle, St. Paul's Cathedral, St. James' Church, Trinity College, and other famous London locations.

Assisted by patronage from the Kings of England over the course of his life, as well as being a favorite associate of well-known contemporary architect Christopher Wren, Gibbon's style of cascading foliage and fauna graced the homes of many an appreciative audience. Most of his carvings alluded to classical mythology, and were described by Horace Walpole as "loose and airy" in contrast to the typical heavy nature of wood.

EffectsEdit

Charged with Gibbons' intent to create incredible works of art, as the whet wheel spins it will make all wooden objects in the area grow and form into intricate carvings of figures and shapes. The process is only stopped by the wheel's movement being halted.
