yeloson: (southside)
[personal profile] yeloson
This massive statue is in the shape of a golden bird composed of some form of unknown metallic alloy. Of the thousands of metallic feathers, a single one is missing with the tiniest of blackening (possibly from lightning?). The dating results have been sealed for employees with security clearance 9 or above, and so is omitted from this report.

Weight: 333kg
Length: 4.5m (standing)
Width: 18m (wings outstretched)
Origin: South Indian? The styling is a bit difficult to place to a specific time period.

Aside from the sheer presence of the piece, closer inspection reveals that each individual feather is actually articulates independently. The head has a small latch which reveals a bizarre tiny throne surrounded by levers of all types, which appear capable of articulating the statue.

Internal memo:
Is this some childish hazing ritual? I just spent two weeks examining this thing top to bottom, and half of the tests come back "inconclusive" or "beyond my security clearance"? I know, I know, it was an excellent way for me to learn the layout of the offices and labs, but seriously? Am I to believe there was a 6 cm pilot for this device?
