!Yes, Hermes, speak! What is this about?Lucy
It is supposed to be the dead man's wife wearing her wedding dress trying to induce him to join her 'on the other side'. A fairly popular theme when Spiritualism was becoming very popular.
That's interesting because it's not that I object to beards (re. another comment) - just that Holman Hunt's looks too much like ectoplasm.Lucy
Thanks Lucy,I saw ectoplasm once and it didn't remind me of a beard but I was probably a bit startled at the time!
What!That's extraordinary.Are you prepared to say more about the circumstances?Lucy
Not much to say really Lucy. Before I became disabled I did some work as a Healer and had several friends who were very into physical mediumship. I'm still not entirely convinced by trance states but I did see and hear some odd things including just the once ectoplasm. It didn't form into anything and didn't last long but still rather surprising.
