— Game Description
Embodiment of Spirit is one of Guertena's sculptures located in the Guertena Art Gallery in the game Ib. The sculpture consists of a large red rose with a spiraling stem. In the Guertena Art Gallery, it can be seen with a few fallen petals on the ground. In the True Guertena Exhibit, the fallen petals are absent.A Painting's Demise, the sculpture can be seen after Mary jumps through the Fabricated World painting; the sculpture's appearance will have changed into that of a yellow rose with fallen petals. When the gallery begins to darken, the rose will be wilting, representing Mary's imminent demise.
In the Guertena Art Gallery, the sculpture is located in the lower-left room on the first floor. A man is observing it from the front, while a child observes it from a corner. Ib cannot read the word "Embodiment," so she must return with Garry in order for it to be added to the True Guertena Exhibit.

- "I wanna pick up those petals!" - Blue-haired boy to Ib
- "Whaaa, why's that? Would you just leave them there? Peh!" - Response to Ib's "I don't think so..."
- "You're boooring!" - Response to Ib's "They'll get mad."
