In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost is the soul or spirit of a deceased person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, life-like visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.

The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures. Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic—are specifically designed to appease the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of phantom armies, ghost trains, phantom ships, and even ghost animals have also been recounted

In many cultures malignant, restless ghosts are distinguished from the more benign spirits involved in ancestor worship.

Ancestor worship typically involves rites intended to prevent revenants, vengeful spirits of the dead, imagined as starving and envious of the living. Strategies for preventing revenants may either include sacrifice: giving the dead food and drink to pacify them, or magical banishment of the deceased to force them not to return. Ritual feeding of the dead is performed in traditions like the Chinese Ghost Festival or the Western All Souls' Day. Magical banishment of the dead is present in many of the world's burial customs. The bodies found in many tumuli (kurgan) had been ritually bound before burial, and the custom of binding the dead persists, for example, in rural Anatolia.

Although the human soul was sometimes symbolically or literally depicted in ancient cultures as a bird or other animal, it appears to have been widely held that the soul was an exact reproduction of the body in every feature, even down to clothing the person wore. This is depicted in artwork from various ancient cultures, including such works as the Egyptian Book of the Dead, which shows deceased people in the afterlife appearing much as they did before death, including the style of dress.

A place where ghosts are reported is described as haunted, and often seen as being inhabited by spirits of deceased who may have been former residents or were familiar with the property. Supernatural activity inside homes is said to be mainly associated with violent or tragic events in the building's past such as murder, accidental death, or suicide — sometimes in the recent or ancient past. But not all hauntings are at a place of a violent death, or even on violent grounds. Many cultures and religions believe the essence of a being, such as the 'soul', continues to exist. Some philosophical and religious views argue that the 'spirits' of those who have died have not 'passed over' and are trapped inside the property where their memories and energy are strong.

No No,
I know the song, already, originally from the beatles right? It is about a children swing, beatles said, when I remember right, and he sees it as a kind of universal message :O Do you have a song, too? Who gives you all the answers, you need ? With a secretly secret message, Mr. Manson ?;)

(This link worked, but I can't listening it here and don't really want ;))

Hahahaha you lazy ass! Forget about that subliminal stuff in music, there are specially songs or albums but the rest are urban legends :D
But to be honest this song makes me feel so violent, i don´t know why, and i know more people who feel the same. Call it mood.

The secret message here is: drink more coffee and smoke more cigarettes!!! :D

Absolutely agree, the fiction movies and books made that, but is stupid to think if they exist, they all are evil, so...
I lived in a haunted house for years, or call it what you want, and one night i felt a great and intense peace, not fear or evil stuff, sometimes that fuckers were so funny

To be honest, i never knew if that experiencies are an influence on my art, because since i was a child i felt a big attraction for all that things. And that stuff just made it bigger :D
It´s like the voodoo... damn is not about a retarded flesh eater people, or the witchery... or holy UFOS, the aliens, to think in another lifes with a humanoid shape is so innocent and narcisist!
Thank you so much for your always interesting comments and points of views, really a pleasure!

I really love this piece. The white background really makes me focus on the figure. The figure has a strong aura, as if its pain and suffering are literally radiating off of its 'body'. I wouldn't want to see this figure before me, the expression is lost but I feel like it might not take kindly to a living soul. Wonderful.

One day I hope you can show us a step by step or a video or something of you creating one of these pieces, I'm really interested in your techniques.

Also I love this song~:heart:

Wow thank you!!! Yeah i wanted to try to focus all to the figure, and that white background is perfect.

It is indeed, the back ground I mean. Totally perfect.

That sounds really neat. It would be cool to see it in action though. The details you get with it is so cool. How big are the images? (if I may ask)

Coffee and music is probably the best combination for any artistic magic~!

I'll never stop! You're art inspires the words in me lol.
