Here is a painting that was auctioned on EBay, apparently it is a cursed or haunted painting, that has caused people to become ill, sometimes
It went for $1,025.00, and is called "Hands Resist Him" and was painted in 1972, the boy is apparently the painter as a child, and the window
apparently the veil between the boys world and the dream world.
Some of the symptoms of looking at this picture are supposed to be dizziness, a general feeling of illness, fainting, and some even report witnessing
dark visitors in the night after viewing it.
Here is the original EBay description of this painting.........
When we received this painting, we thought it was really good art. A " picker " had found it abandoned behind an old brewery. At the time we
wondered a little why a seemingly perfectly fine painting would be discarded like that. ( today we don't !!! ) one morning our 4 and 1/2 year old
daughter claimed, that the children in the picture were fighting, and coming into the room during the night. Now, i don't believe in ufos or elvis
being alive, but my husband was alarmed. To my amusement he set up a motion triggered camera for the nights. After three nights there were
pictures.the last two pictures shown are from that 'stakeout'. After seeing the boy seemingly exiting the painting under threat, we decided, the
painting has to go.please judge for yourself. --- before you do, please read the following warning and disclaimer. ----warning: do not bid on this
painting if you are susceptible to stress related disease, faint of heart or are unfamiliar with supernatural events. By bidding on this painting, you
agree to release the owners of all liability in relation to the sale or any events happening after the sale, that might be contributed to this
painting. This painting may or may not posess supernatural powers, that could impact or change your life. However, by bidding you agree to exclusively
bid on the value of the artwork, with disregard to the last two photos featured in this auction, and hold the owners harmless in regard to them and
their impact, expressed or implied.------------ now that we got this out of the way, one question to you ebayers. We want our house to be blessed
after the painting is gone, does anybody know, who is qualified to do that? The size of the painting is 24 by 36 inches, so it is rather large. As i
have had several questions, here the following answers. There was no odor left behind in the room. There were no voices, or the smell of gunpowder, no
foodprints or strange fluids on the wall. To deter questions in this direction, there are no ghosts in this world , no supernatural powers, this is
just a painting, and most these things have an explanation, in this case probably a fluke light effect. I encourage you to bid on the artwork, and
consider the last two photographs as pure entertainment, and please do not take them into consideration, when bidding. As we think it is a good idea
to bless any house, we still welcome input into that procedure.
This auction is nearing the end. I want to thank the more than 13000 people that took the time to look at this image on Ebay. I appreciate the more
than 30 suggestions, that I received regarding blessing the house, exorcising and cleansing. 7 e-mails reported strange or irregular events taking
place, when viewing this image. And I will relay two suggestions made by the senders. First not to use this image as the background on the screen, and
second not to display this image around juveniles or children. Last not least, thanks for appreciating the art as well.
I stared into this picture my self, and I have to say I did feel ill and a little dizzy, but that is probably just automatic suggestion like I was
thinking about feeling ill, so I did....
Here is the picture in question, haunted or not, id not want it above my fire place.
