Sh1keyitem Black Tortoise Votive Picture
Shadow Hearts
"Painting with the power of the Black Tortoise."

Used as a key within Kuihai Tower. Fits into the altar at the top of the stairs to the right of the entrance.


Mystic tool with the power of the Black Tortoise, one of the gods of the directions. In the hands of a wicked person, it alone could lay waste to an entire nation.

Received automatically after the Yamaraja: Stone battle.


  • Rarely for the game props in Shadow Hearts, the votive pictures exist as fully rendered 3d objects in the game world, complete with a texture of the votive image, although due to the PS2's resolution it's impossible to see in any detail under normal circumstances.
