OriginEdit

The god Shiva forms one of the triumvirate head gods in the Hindu pantheon. While his equals Brahma and Vishnu respectively create and preserve the universe, Shiva’s role is to destroy it so the next can be created. In the Hindu belief, Shiva’s destruction is seen as both devastating and beneficial, combining contradictory elements together.

The most recent time it was activated was 1908 in Russia. Over Siberia an explosion rang out, flattening out and destroying acres of forest. Although reporters and scientists thought it was a large meteor strike they called the Tunguska Event, it was really the jar at play. Later on, conspiracy theorists speculated inventor Nikola Tesla caused the blast, which is totally untrue. He discovered the artifact’s activation with his equipment while Warehouse 13 was still being constructed.

EffectsEdit

(WARNING! EXTREMELY DANGEROUS ARTIFACT DO NOT OPERATE WITHOUT SUBMERSION IN NEUTRALIZER)

This automaton artifact contains the fury and destructive capabilities of the Hindu god Shiva. The jar will countdown from ten in Sanskrit and release an explosive blast when opened. The surrounding area for hundreds of kilometers will be decimated, especially those closest to the blast zone.
