On the item is an image of a limestone statue in limestone

It seems it'd be even more displacing if said item is a limestone statue.

I've created something similar using DC.

It's on the wiki.  Essentially, as soon as your moody dorf is in the process of carrying an item back to the claimed workshop you change what the artifact needs.  The dorf drops it off, looks at his checklist, sees he hasn't added the next item, and goes to get it. 

For example, if the mood list is
cut gems
metal bars
wood

When he's coming back with, say, sapphires, you use DC to change cut gems to silk cloth.  He drops off the sapphires, adds them to the (TSK), checks the new list

silk cloth
metal bars
wood

and goes to get some silk cloth.  Rinse and repeat.

I put it on the wiki a while back...

Can you repeat it infinitely or is it limited to one of each material type per item slot?

As often as you want, with the caveat that you can't change metal bars to metal bars - you have to change, for example, metal to silk to metal.

I can't remember what happens if you change after the dorf starts pathing to the new material, but before he gets there.  It might be that he gets there, halts, and looks for the new first material, but it's been a while and I'm not sure.

My next artifact will be glorious!

It's just a shame my current fort seems to have hit its artifact limit.

3,105,600

not what I expected. Maybe the multiplier glitched out.
No...
The 1200x multiplier only works on the base item.
Since all stones are worth very little, having hundreds of them isn't going to add up very fast.
3 million dwarfbucks in stone is QUITE a feat.

Bumping this because this is awesome.

Heh, the name of the statue is Planepacked, which given the amount of decorations on the two dimensional surface of the statue, seems appropriate.

I understood nothing, contributed nothing, but still got to win, so good game everybody else.

Good pickup, I hadn't noticed that before :P... so an artifact is also appropriately named named for once, this event makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside

Hey, a child made a horse bone coffin (from zombie horses) on my evil map and named it "The Decay of Hooves" :D It didn't have any nice pictures though. Just zombie horse bone spikes.
