The statue curse, is a curse that will, once unleashed, turn individuals into stone statues. The texture of the statues is the same as the Merperson Trident discovered in the Portrait Vault. The Mandrake Restorative Draught is ineffective in curing the victims of the curse.
In the 1989–1990 school year, a male student was turned into a statue in the Clock Tower Courtyard as the result of this powerful and malign curse being somehow unleashed. Beatrice Haywood first discovered the student, before the situation was investigated by Severus Snape and Jacob's sibling. A female Gryffindor was also found petrified. Both students were taken to the Hospital Wing. Eventually even the school healer who was treating the victims, Madam Poppy Pomfrey, was also found petrified.
