A photograph of SCP-XXXX upon recovery.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept locked in a 5mX5mX5m room at all times, hung with a wire hook 2.5m up the farthest wall from the entryway. A 300cmX300cm black fabric cloth is to be draped over all visible parts of SCP-XXXX except in cases of testing. If SCP-XXXX happens to change and become too large for the draping, no less than two (2) Class D personnel are to be dispatched into the containment chamber with an appropriately sized replacement to ensure complete coverage of SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX’s containment chamber is to be kept adequately lit, and surveyed via security camera to ensure the drapery is efficiently covering SCP-XXXX at all times.

No entry into SCP-XXXX’s containment chamber or testing of SCP-XXXX is permitted without express permission from a Level 4 security clearance member or higher. Any permitted entry into the containment chamber must see all those entering to wear protective goggles over their eyes.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an oil painting of an individual. The size, coloration, and subject of the painting are subject to indefinite change. The only constants of SCP-XXXX’s appearance are that the subject of the painting is always that of a human, and that the painting is always in color made by oil paint.

SCP-XXXX appears to be incapable of being damaged (see “Test A” log). All weapons, projectile or otherwise, seemingly disappear when coming in contact with SCP-XXXX.

Upon viewing SCP-XXXX with the naked eye, subjects are reported to have an overwhelming sense calm. Approximately twenty (20) minutes after viewing SCP-XXXX, subjects begin to gradually lose coloration. No less than fifty (50) minutes after first viewing SCP-XXXX, subjects will become completely colorless and die. During this process, the likeness of the most recent viewer will gradually take the place of the current subject of SCP-XXXX.

Cause of losing pigmentation and death in subjects is still unknown, but current theories point to rapid dehydration and [DATA EXPUNGED].
Cause of pigmentation loss and death in subjects has been confirmed to be rapid dehydration and [DATA EXPUNGED] (see “Test B” log).

Viewing SCP-XXXX through anything other than the naked eye has proved to be safe and have no effect on the viewer (see “Test C” log).

Addendum:

Test A – 4/15/2017

Subject: Researcher ██████ █████
Procedure: Subject is to attempt to damage the physical integrity of SCP-XXXX using various tools, including a gun, a knife, and a highly corrosive acid called [DATA EXPUNGED].
Results: All tools used in an attempt to damage SCP-XXXX disappeared from the hands of the subject when they came in contact with SCP-XXXX.
Analysis: Damage of SCP-XXXX appears impossible. Further testing required.

Test B – 6/15/2017

Subject: Deceased D-Class personnel
Procedure: The body of the a deceased subject from a previous test where the subject was to view SCP-XXXX unprotected was given an autopsy.
Results: Autopsy showed signs of severe dehydration and [DATA EXPUNGED].
Analysis: Cause of death from SCP-XXXX determined to be rapid dehydration and [DATA EXPUNGED].

Test C – 6/19/2017

Subject: Researcher ██████ █████
Procedure: Subject is instructed to enter SCP-XXXX’s containment chamber wearing tinted eye goggles.
Results: No usual effects of viewing SCP-XXXX were reported or observed.
Analysis: Viewing SCP-XXXX with anything other than the naked eye is safe.
