"The Cursed Statue" is a Shrine Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Overview

At Fort Hateno, Link will find Calip reciting a text to himself,[2] the subject of which he believes is nearby.[3] When Link asks what he is doing, Calip instead assumes that he is here to learn about his research.[4] However, he becomes dejected when he finds out that Link has not heard of him, even after all of the research he has done on Ancient Shrines.[5] He tells Link to remember his name, as he will soon be famous.[6] He also insists he be called Dr. Calip,[7] since people always seem to forget he is a doctor.[8]

As he is studying ancient texts, Calip has no time to chat with Link.[9] He believes that the culmination of his research will be the discovery of the century,[10] and so to protect his work, he has not even told his family about it.[11] If Link calls him doctor, however, Calip will become excited.[12] In light of this, Calip decides to tell Link some of his research in confidence.[13]

Calip shares the Ancient Text with Link, which states one must pierce the gaze of a cursed statue to reveal an Ancient Shrine.[14] Though he is still deciphering it, he sees no harm in sharing it with Link.[15] His life has become a pattern of researching Ancient Shrines during the day and studying texts at night.[16] He has no more time to spend talking to Link, so he bids him farewell.[17] When he finishes speaking, the Shrine Quest will begin.

During the day, Calip can be found studying a site filled with statues northeast of his cabin. At 9:00 PM, the eyes of one of the statues will begin to glow a purple light. Link can shoot it with an Arrow, which will cause Kam Urog Shrine to rise from the ground.[18] After this, the Shrine Quest will be completed.
