This artifact is used (along with the right equipment) to preserve people in the form of a bronze statue.
The artifact was stolen by Paraceleus and used on Claudia Donovan.
The stele artifact was used presumably since 1250 B.C. because the process was mentioned early in the series but it was time consuming and heavy. If not used properly, the bronzed person will start to crumble away.
