The Gated Key

A small junk passes before a gated key device half-sunk in an unidentified body of water.

The attached illustration recently turned up in the estate collection of a little known 20th century American artist. The illustration depicts a small junk-rigged sailboat passing between two sea stacks in a coastal area (possibly Thailand?). We note a distinct similarity between the central structure depicted in the Site 12 illustration titled “Kalopsian Abyss” and the far “sea stack” depicted here.

Both objects feature a ring structure which surrounds — but is disconnected from — a cylindrical object of approximately half the ring’s diameter. The TABLET RUBY DOOR program identified anomalous devices with this topology as “Gated Key” devices and recommends their immediate quarantine or demolition when discovered.
