Item #: SCP-197

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: A copy of SCP-197 is permanently stationed on the desk of Dr. ██████'s office. Documents on SCP-197 are stored on separate drives, each with a unique folder containing one copy of SCP-197. These drives are to be labeled with a photograph of SCP-197. Any revisions in the containment procedures are to be discussed with Dr. ██████.

Description: SCP-197 resembles a Gaslight painting in a style reminiscent of the early twentieth century. SCP-197 is capable of producing a variety of visible and non-visible color alterations within its borders, all of which have been consistent in their appearance for each SCP-197 instance since its containment.

The number of SCP-197 instances has increased at a rate of approximately 2.2 per month since Incident 197-A in which the SCP-197 instance was removed from containment. SCP-197 instances are capable of performing all incantations written by contemporary scholars of the 20th century.

Additionally, SCP-197 instances can produce projects of an artistic nature .
