History[edit | edit source]

This was used by a insane artist by the name of Alexander Von Duran, he used this artifact (Along with another) to make the horrifying sculpture known by the name of SCP-173.

Along with H.H. Holmes' Cough Syrup, the artist made this Sculpture in 1987 while exploring his "inner self" and inadvertently created this monster sculpture out of paint mixed with the cough syrup and carved from a make shift tool that was Maruyama Ōkyo's Paintbrush. The Sculpture eventually killed its creator and was taken under custody of Arthur Nielson and James McPherson. The Sculpture is not in the Warehouse because of its elusive properties.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Turns any artwork extremely lifelike to the point it takes on almost living qualities. Images of the piece will keep following the user until they enter a non-conscious state. The presence of the work will continually follow them, appearing in blink-and-you'll-miss-it backgrounds and staying as an afterimage behind one's closed eyes.
