The Old Fisherman (1902)

The painting above by Tivadar Kosztka Csontváry has a pretty amazing secret to it which can be seen by using a mirror.

If you place the mirror exactly in the middle of the painting, on the left, you can see a man — wise-looking and sad — resting with his back to the serene mountains and the calm sea. He is God.

If you look to the right, you will see a man — evil-looking and menacing — with his back to the erupting volcano and the stormy sea. He is Devil


Enfield Poltergeist

11-year old Janet Hodgson was the center of a horrifying poltergeist. Janet was photographed, by Graham Morris, in mid air. She was believed to be channeling the spirit of the former residence of their home in Enfield, he called himself Bill Wilkins.

There were also reports of furniture being moved through the air, and flying objects swirling towards witnesses. There were cold breezes, physical assaults, graffiti, water appearing on the floor, and even claims of matches spontaneously bursting into flame.

Janet was also the mouth piece of Bill Wilkins. Paranormal investigators were brought in to figure out what was happening. Voices of dogs barking and growling also started to come out of Janet, along with Bill’s voice. No explanation was given to what happened in Enfield, other than from paranormal investigators. The voices coming from Janet were taped, I will upload those as well.



Hananuma Masakichi

When this Japanese artist learned he was dying from tuberculosis, he decided he wanted to leave a parting gift to the woman he loved. He decided to make her a life-like statue of himself that ended up looking so real it was hard to tell the real Hananuma from the statue when they stood next to each other.

He made each body part separately using dark wood which was painted and lacquered to match his skin tone. He made a tiny individual hole for every pore in his body, then plucked out his own hair (everywhere) and inserted into the exact position in the statue. He removed his own teeth, finger and toe nails which he also placed on the statue. For a final touch he gave the statue his glasses and clothes.

He lived another 10 years and ironically died of poverty (despite his talent) in 1895. You can go see this statue at London Auditorium.


The President

The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.

This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).

This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.



The Warren Occult Museum (founded 1952) by Ed and Lorraine Warren, most notable for their investation of the Amityville house, though most of you will probably remember them from watching The Conjuring.They created the New England Society for Psychic Research in 1951. The museum is the world’s largest and oldest museum of its kind, boasting a vast collection of haunted items and items used in occult and satanic rituals. I’m sure some of you remember our post about Annabelle the Raggedy-Ann doll, which can be found in this museum.


Victorian Headless Portraits

The Victorian era has many photographs, most of which show the subject sitting or standing with a stern expression. Since photography was still in its infancy, photographers were experimenting with novel ways to create photos that differed from the norm. Animals acting human was one popular concept, and then came the headless portrait. Funny and entertaining, a new genre of photography was born.
