A user of the New Zealand site “Trade Me” (New Zealand’s leboncoin) decides to sell a work of art that she claims to be “haunted” after witnessing a series of unexplainable events in her own home.

Indeed, a painting nicknamed “Soul Bowl” with an empty bowl as its major element was bought by a couple in an antique shop located on the tiny Pauanui peninsula in New Zealand. But quickly, the new owners of the work of art suspected that something had entered the house at the same time as the painting.
It was multiple unexplained incidents that frightened the owners, including the woman who explained that the painting fell off the wall at night when there was absolutely no one in the house except the couple of owners. But beyond that, something even stranger emanated from this painting.
“Another night, we saw a dark silhouette in motion from the bedroom window on the floor where the painting was hanging,” she says. …Once upon a time, and after further investigation, my own shadow / silhouette was projected onto the driveway from outside when I looked out the window…
Moreover, on the edges of the painting, or at least what the pictures show us, we can see on the right side and the top of the painting two short sentences, which together form a longer one:
– The shape of my soul is a bowl The Shape : which can be translated as : The shape of my soul is a bowl. The form… The rest is probably missing.

Not being at all interested in the paranormal world, and even less interested in experiencing disturbing events, the woman decided to put the painting on sale on the “Trade Me” website with a starting price of 40$ (33€). She explains on the site some of what she has observed with her spouse and indicates:
For sale because it’s too scary to have. Ideal for someone who is interested in the paranormal.
On January 19, 2018, the painting was sold anonymously for $150 or the equivalent of $123.
