Artwork and Depictions

As with all the Immortals, various works of art to the god can be found throughout the realms.

Temple of the North Wind Frieze

Found NE from the entrance:

Each frieze portrays people powerless in the face of nature's fury. Sharks feed on men swept overboard as stormy seas swamp a ship. Families flee a village in the path of lava pouring from a volcano. Searchers hunt through the ruins of a town destroyed by a wind storm, digging out bodies. Skeletally thin figures scavenge for food in a field killed by drought. A viper coils around a wasted woman dying from plague. Etched beneath the images are the words, "Terror and Pain: Destructive Rage."

Muspar'i Temple of Hav'roth

Found in the Grand Gallery is a fresco:

The colorful painting depicts the creation of the S'Kra Mur. Ushnish is shown elevating the race from base creatures. Hav'roth stands in the center of a group of S'Kra, instilling them with intelligence and learning. Peri'el completes the transformation, teaching them the gifts of the tail.

Found in the southwest room of the semidome is a fresco:

A detailed mural of Ushnish is painted upon the inside of the semidome far above. Purplish-red garnets and panels of glossy black obsidian inlay highlight the scene of the god standing with fearsome eyes blazing in the middle of a panorama of natural disasters.
