Malice's True Form

Type of Artwork Painting
Location Dungeon / Orange Area
True Guertena Exhibit
Ugh... Stay away from it, Ib...

— Garry

Malice's True Form is one of Guertena's paintings located in the Orange Area of the Dungeon in the game Ib. It depicts a mutated anthropomorphic head with empty eye sockets, painted both inside and outside the frame to look as if it was crawling outside the canvas. The image is set against a red background, with a black inner frame, surrounded by a dark blue outer frame.

When Ib and Garry find it for the first time by lighting the area around it, the head will twitch and emit an inhuman cry; and, when they turn their back to it, a squelching sound can be heard. Upon examining the painting again, they will discover that the head had disappeared from its frame; when the area turns nighttime, they can find the head lying next to the sleeping snake, completely still and lifeless.   


In the Orange Area, the painting is located on the northwest side of the Dark Room.
