"A small, gold figurine of a calf."
The golden calf is a quest item which is part of the Ripples quest first given to Geralt by the friendly vodyanoi priest who guards the Altar to the Lady of the Lake. Geralt has three choices in this quest:
- side with the vodyanoi, represented by the friendly priest
- side with the villagers, represented by Julian
- reconcile both sides for the Lady of the Lake
The friendly vodyan priest, acting for the vodyanoi, offers this golden calf.
