My educated guess would be in their own personal inventory or on their dead bodies...

In general they just carry them around on their person right now (which of course gets a bit silly when you come to artifact thrones, coffins, weapon racks, etc. :P) This will change with the next release, where at least some of them will be stored in specialized forts.

EDIT: Nvm, missed the part where you explicitly stated it was "stored". Could be wrong, but I think stored artifacts are generally just lying around the site in some random spot, so if it's a sizeable fortress you may have to invest some time looking for this artifact. Again, this will change with the next release when stored artifacts should become more obvious.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

They dont put them on pedestals in dwarf fortresses yet? Because thats where i would check in every other site, eg meadhalls, in the middle of temples etc.
