My name is [redacted] I work for Ididian Containment as a low level security officer. To pass the time I've been making these journals during shifts, little sketches of what I see here every night.
If you are reading this, something has happened to me...
And you are in grave danger.
So my supervisor Jim had me shadow him on his shift in the higher danger level areas of the building. Some stuff was pretty weird, I may write/draw about them some other time. This one however, Contained #15478, was beautiful. I asked Jim if we could take our lunch break near its cell so I could sketch it. He allowed this; seeing as it was a lower level risk than the others. He went on to explain that it was a statue, not a creature. One of many non-biological items in the Containment buildings, Contained #15478 was sculpted in [redacted] by the artist [redacted] before their death.
So the weird part, this was sculpted with the artist’s fingernails…
Seems something caused him to go insane and rip out his own fingernails, maw them to a point and sculpt for 9 days with no food or rest.
The statue is pretty safe as compared to other things in this building .( Found out during lunch what the highest danger level creature in the building was, pretty horrifying shit, hope I never have to see it) Apparently its only here while they try and figure out what drove the artist [redacted] to such lengths.
Crazy part, before he died of exhaustion, the artist said he didn’t even remember making it.
In any case it was beautifully sculpted and I just had to capture it…
