Some of you guys probably played Oblivion, and you probably ran across a quest where you save a painter by going in his painting. Apparently, the painter used an "Aedric" artifact, or so the wiki says, made by Dibella's hair called the Brush of True Paint which allows you to go in the painting creating it from the inside-out.
I was wondering if their were any other Aedric artifacts that we know of.

Honestly, I´m not certain about this. The Aedra/Divines/Gods usually don´t give artifcts to the mortals, and if it´s mythic, like the stuff of Pelinal or the amulet of Kings. Also, the Crusaders armor, with every Piece allocated to a certain divine, Sounds either like allesian Propaganda or pretty generic Fantasy and not elder scrollish to me. I blame Oblivion's generic world for that. The brush of truepaint belongs to such.

Though, It's referenced to in Skyrim, so I guess it's lore.

I have another Explanation for you, though:

We have a Dunmer receiving a gift from an Aedra? That's not impossible, but Dunmer are rather fans of their living Gods/ the Daedra and of their ancestors. The Imperial cult is existent, but not the first on the list. It is more likely that Rythe Lythandas lied about his father, and that his father traded his arms (and most likely his Soul) for the brush of truepaint from a Daedric Prince. Maybe Sheogorath, Hermaeus or Clavicus.

And I don´t know any other 'Aedric artifacts' but the amulet of Kings, and the crusader stuff. Auriel's bow doesn't Count.


Who controls the Septim crown?
Who keeps the Allesian Heresy down?
We do, we do

Who knocked Yokuda off the maps?
Who keeps the Dwemer under wraps?
We do, we do

Or perhaps Rythe is telling what he thinks is the truth and his father is the one who lied.

Never thought about it, i guess your right. But why does the wiki say so? I'm not arguing just asking.

Auriel's bow and shield are in both Morrowind and Skyrim, and I believe in earlier games as well.

You can receive gifts personally from Mara and Zenithar in Morrowind. They appear in the flesh, as mortal avatars, and give you things they personally created.

Tiber Septim's boots he wore as an apprentice were probably blessed by Kyne. You can receive these and other Aedric artifacts for the Imperial Cult in Morrowind.

Stendarr's very own hammer is on display in Mournhold. It's gigantic and far too heavy to be wielded by any mortal.
