OR the crying boy that was posted twice already ?

Don't be scared of what you cannot see, your only fear is possibility,
never wondered what the hell went wrong,  your second chance may never come along.
Hold on now your exits here, it's waiting just for you,
don't pause too long its fading now, its ending all too sooooon,
you'll see. ~pete murray~

Heres the article:
QUOTE
By Rowena Gilbert - Castle of Spirits.com - COSPER Ghosthunters

In February, 2000 the sudden appearance of a rather strange painting with the accompanying title of "Haunted Painting" made it's debut on Ebay.com. Of course a title like this is going to attract attention and it's still discussed to this day whether the painting is genuinely haunted or not. Even stranger is the reactions that the general public had when viewing the photos of the painting.

The artist is Bill Stoneham, the painting title is "Hands Resist Him".
You can visit his website at Stoneham Studios.
Bill tells of how he painted Hands Resist Him in 1972, the boy in the picture being himself, the hands being other lives, the windows/door being a thin veil between waking and dreaming with the small doll like girl being the guide through.

Bill does not know how his painting ended up abandoned as described by the Ebay.com seller, but he does know a gallery owner where the painting was originally displayed and sold at, and a Los Angeles Times critic, who reviewed the show, were both dead within one year of the painting being shown.

THE ORIGINAL EBAY TEXT THAT ACCOMPANIED THE 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.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


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".

I find it creepy that someone would want to make a paining like this anyway.

Posted 20 March 2012 - 04:52 AM

There are bunches of haunted dolls on eBay.Other things too .
I actually have a tapestry that allegedly dates back to the late 1800s,and it was used in a reading/seance room of a witches home .
It came from an estate liquidation.A bunch of her items were alleged to have paranormal activity reported.
I liked it in general.It depicts a Victorian party of sorts,with 4men and a woman,all in dress of the time period.I also needed to hang something in a spot in my living room anyway.
The story went ,when this woman did readings,the figures in the picture,"came to life",and moved within the picture,and interacted with other people in the actual reading room.
It was cheap,and I liked it,but they have yet to move or speak to me.

I never really had a painting come to life but i known dolls and stuff can be. I use to own one when i was younger, and it scared the crap out of me. I believe that certain things can be manipulated from things unknown like dolls to interact with this world. But just my opinion.

That's a rather delusional opinion, if I do say so myself. The reason why I say that is because we simply have no evidence to suggest that ghosts truly exist.

No we don't have proof, but you can't explain a lot of things with science, just my opinion. Be entitled to your own opinion. I know what i see to be true. sorry if you disagree with me.

Paranoid schizophrenics believe what they see to be true, as well. What separates their beliefs from yours?

" Haunted item on ebay "

Doesn't that explain enough?

It is hard for me to grasp that people actually believe these things, and many do.People buy them.......

I think it should be illegal myself.

There was a attempt at a scam here with a haunted item, luckily the OP trusted me thinking I would be dis-honest, and he was reported, and found out.

I was offered up to $5000.00 to help with the scam, he had all ready had offers of $1,000.00, and he figured with a story on a popular paranormal site, with a resident skeptic seeing it to be true ( sent to me in mail, etc. ) the price would go up....

There were a lot of members here that believed him, and actually were mad at me for being so " harsh " with him in the topic.....

It bothers me to see any type of lying and fraud, especially using the " paranormal " community as prey.......It is a easier target un-fortunatley, and is one of the reasons I try to help show facts in topics here, and in the real life world.


If something is claimed to be haunted / paranormal, please consider the reality of this and research, research, research......If there is a price tag on it, I 100% guarantee it is a scam.


cough, cough....Psychics also
