Horror Dolls: The Works Of Hans Bellmer

Has anyone of you seen the movie “Silent Hill”, or played the games? For as far as I know my general public, I think the answer is yes. Although I think the pyramid-headed demon guy is still the most memorable feature, the creepy headless dolls may have left an impression as well. You can imagine my amazement when we discussed the work of Hans Bellmer, a German surrealist photographer, and I suddenly saw a picture that could have been straight out of Silent Hill. For comparison, see below…

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
