Curtains of the show, the innocents, finally opened highlighting some good local stage actors. And once you look at the set, there is a portrait, the subject of many strange tales.

The one who owned the portrait for so many years prefers to be unknown. The lady cannot recall why she bought the picture all she knew was she was going down the road, parked suddenly and bought it for reasons unknown to her up to now.

As she stood there waiting for the clerk to take the picture out of the window for her, she thought what am I doing, I can't afford to buy this picture. It's almost time for the children to go back to school and books, clothes, and school supplies are to be bought.

She recalls thinking how to tell the clerk that she was no longer going to buy it for she just cannot afford this beautiful piece of art. This lady just had to blurt out, in a very loud voice, that she just had to get the painting no matter her financial situation, and this stopped the clerk from returning the portrait.

She still could not fathom how she bought it as she was paying the clerk and then walked out of the antique shop then her thoughts led to her husband, certain that he would be so mad of her compulsion to buy that thing that she could barely afford at that time. The picture is in oil of a Borzoi, a Russian wolfhound painted by an artist in the late 1800's or early 1900's.

This very beautiful picture when scrutinized by someone familiar with the Borzoi will easily wonder why the Borzoi in the picture was painted with an almost straight on pose and he will also get to wonder why it is only the dog's head and shoulders shown there. And the shoulders and chest seem to be a bit out of proportion.

This makes the fact that she bought the picture even more strange as she was very familiar with the breed and knew what a Borzoi should look like. Eerily, when her husband came home that night, the lady was initially scared that he would get mad as she bought that before the things needed by their children, but then it was so ironic that he also felt some attraction towards it like she did.

Going through all the photos shot by both amateurs and experts in photography, it was a wonder how no two shots of it ever came out to be the same. Some moments, a spectral face would appear on the right portion of the painting, in some the dog appears to be almost three dimensional, in others flat, but in almost all of the pictures, whether they were in black and white or color, there have been strange lights appearing.

I certainly do not think that there is something strange about this portrait for we can just blame it on too much imagination and perhaps some kind of light reflections, shared the husband when he and his wife discussed the possibility of an entity accompanying the portrait they bought. Just then a large ceramic plate, which was hanging on the wall, fell with a crash to the floor, without breaking.

The Innocents production head and director asked the couple who owned the portrait if he could loan it for his play revolved around the story of the supernatural and he was relieved to learn that they gladly consented to making it part of the backdrop of his stage presentation. Openly, they discussed with the producer that the portrait might have something mystical about it, specifically something that entered their home the day they bought it and they believe that letting him use this for his show can shed some light to their queries. They could only hope this was true.
