      "Hands Resist Him"



      "Hands Resist Him" by Bill Stoneham

      Supposively, the man who painted this wanted to protray himself here. The doll is supposed to be an imaginary friend that helps him throughout his life or childhood. The door represents the barrier from (I believe..) the dream world and reality. The hands represent his dreams trying to come into reality and of course having troubles doing so.

      Yes, this is the infamous haunted painting that appeared on eBay.

      Quoting from the website below:

      The reactions to viewing the painting are varied and strange, people report of feeling ill and passing out, having strange visitors in the night, children crying in horror when seeing the pictures and some people are even too afraid to look at the pictures.

      The strange light on the painting as seen in the pictures displayed on Ebay.com. could have been achieved by various camera tricks or just by shining a red light on the painting. Very simply done. NO the painting is not genuinely haunted.

      Hands Resist Him eventually sold for $1,025.00 - first bid was $199.00 - it had a total of 30 bids. I would imagine with the popularity of this painting that it would be worth a lot more now, not merely for its value as a painting but for its value as the now famous \"Haunted Ebay Painting\".

      Any thoughts? Anyone disturbed by this?

      Hope it was enlightening

      That's kind of weird.
      But I've had worse. (You have to hate when you're in bed reading in the pitch black, turn the page idly and boof, there's a freaky picture on the next page, and you scramble for the light)
