Description: SCP-XXXX is an oil painting of a young girl on a tire swing behind an old wood shack, painted in a Victorian-era style. Over the course of a week, the painting will begin to slowly lose its picture and appear to melt. After approximately 7 days, the painting will no longer have color and instead appear as a white canvas. The oil produced resides on the floor not being absorbed or evaporated until an individual comes in contact with the painting.

SCP-XXXX emits a noise equivalent to 64 decibels (dB) in the form of "Silent Night", famously composed by Franz Xaver Gruber. The musical rendition is performed in instrumental form. The noise when produced via speakers contain no memetic effects on any individual. When heard via human ear, subjects will at first exhibit no behavioral difference. After approximately thirty (30) minutes, affected individuals will begin to be drawn towards SCP-XXXX's original location.

If an individual is successful in reaching SCP-XXXX's location within thirty (30) minutes of the initial hearing, the subject will proceed to stare at the painting. After three (3) minutes, the subject will fall to the floor dead and begin to rapidly decompose in minutes with "Silent Night" played in a much slower pace than previously. SCP-XXXX's, if any oil had dripped, portrait will slowly regenerate to its original form with the oil evaporating from the floor. Once this process is finished, the aforementioned song will continue playing at its normal speed.

If an individual is not successful in reaching SCP-XXXX's location after thirty (30) minutes, SCP-XXXX's oil will immediately drain entirely onto the floor, regardless of how much was remaining on it. SCP-XXXX will begin to be emitting a very slow rendition of "Silent Night". The oil will begin to form into a humanoid, classified as SCP-XXXX-1.
