I came across this statue of a small girl in a neighbors garden. The more I looked at it the more it struck me as being a bit ‘spooky’. It’s something to do with the indistinct eyes. You can’t make them out all that well, but somehow they give the impression that they’re looking right at you (through you?). She’s not really smiling either. More a kind of a knowing leer. And those arms – right down by the sight of the body.

She looked to me like something out of a horror movie (anyone seen ‘The Omen?’). So I tried to enhance the overall ‘creepiness’ of it.
