Artifact DescriptionEdit

This marble bowl was carved from the stone ruins of the Colossus of Rhodes on the island of Rhodes, after it was destroyed by an earthquake in 226 B.C.E..

The artifact is activated by a simple touch and after a short period of time the victim will start to grow slowly, until its effects start to accelerate the growth process of the victim. If left unchecked, the effects will start to stretch internal organs and skin to the point of tearing. It was collected by Myka.

The effects of this artifact can be slowed by the Gold Spike from the Trans-Continental Railroad.

BackgroundEdit

The bowl came to the Warehouse's attention after several people in the same town reported experiencing sudden growth spurts and getting inches taller by the day. However, by time Pete and Myka arrived the people's bodies were already growing out of control to the point where their bodies were literally tearing themselves apart. It was discovered that all the victims had taken the same cooking class together called "Taste of the Mediterranean" and that the classes teacher, who was also effected by the bowl, had a passion for collecting antique cooking tools from around the world and using them in his classes. After learning this Myka quickly snagged and bagged the bowl.

Real World ConnectionsEdit

The Colossus of Rhodes was a statue of the Greek Titan Helios, erected in the city of Rhodes on the Greek island of Rhodes by Chares of Lindos between 292 and 280 BC.

It is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was constructed to celebrate Rhodes' victory over the ruler of Cyprus, Antigonus I Monophthalmus, whose son unsuccessfully besieged Rhodes in 305 BC. Before its destruction in 226 BC—due to an earthquake—the Colossus of Rhodes stood over 30 meters (107 ft) high, making it one of the tallest statues of the ancient world.
