I was out in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn recently, and walked by this front yard display of Halloween decorations on Bay Ridge Parkway. It’s got a nice mix of skulls, gravestones, cobwebs, and even a four cell cage with two animal skeletons, a rat, and a spider.
But there’s one prop that confuses me a little bit … the Edward Hopper-style lighthouse painting and the reclining skeleton that is giving it a light chop with the bloody cleaver. What’s going on here? (see below right for detail)
