The Incantation Scarab helmet is the reward you get from the artist. This helmet can be equipped on your head. It is a large yellow scarab. The helmet has the following description in-game:

Golden scarab worn directly on the head. These Scarabs roll clumps of incantations during their labors. Slightly reduces the FP costs of incantations, but increase damage taken. As a scarab approaches death, it abandons its rolled treasure and stretches its wing side for the long journey to its home nest.

Where to Find the Artist’s Shack in Liurnia

The second artist’s shack can be found in Liurnia on the east side of the area. Go to the map location shown above and interact with the painting inside to get the “Resurrection” painting. This painting shows a view of a castle from a graveyard.
