One for the Collection?


The Hands Resist Him was painted by California artist Bill Stoneham in 1972. Click the image and you will see countless little hands pressed against the glass door behind the boy and the doll. Spooky? Well, that's not all. In 2000, the painting was put up for sale on eBay with a very strange description. Apparently the two figures move freely around the painting at night and may even disappear without trace. Clearly a case of caveat emptor or "let the buyer beware"!

I had a nightmare once, in which babies were stalking me through a glass door like that. Is it totally crazy that I have never seen that painting before, and yet it mirrors my own dream?
