A man who collects ‘weird things’ tries to sell a so-called cursed painting to eBay for just £37 or around Rs. 3754. He claims it ruined his life.

It might seem like the person, who goes by the name Dan Smith, just got his foot in his mouth with this revelation. However, Smith is not the only one to collect weird artifacts after all. Legal or illegal, there is a market for these things.

The eBay reseller revealed that he had come across the The painting at a flea market. The woman he had bought it from had warned him against buying it, but he had his eyes glued to the painting.

Only now is he beginning to realize that owning (if not possessing) such a suspicious piece of art was a “bad decision ultimately” in his own words.

The painting features two children’s dolls sitting side by side in pink and green with very subtle swirls of light blue against a predominantly blue/green background. The relatively anthropomorphic doll dressed in pink has short blonde hair and the smaller one has wavy red hair.

The eBay description of the listing is, however, the ultimate selling point for someone with deliciously dark taste.

“YOU MUST BEWARE DAMN Old Painting Dolls Art Creepy Eerie WARNING 1967,” the title reads. The garish, all-caps disclaimer is enough to put most buyers off.

As for the condition, it is a used paint with details reiterating the title for those who are still there.

“The painting is a little dusty and a lot cursed. Buyer beware!” reads the description.

At first glance, this may seem very daunting, but the seller may be waiting for someone to call their bluff.

Strange artifacts sell, even if they are houses. The trope of bad choice is timeless in Hollywood films.
