Marley's Ghost, or Ebeneezer Scrooge's Door Knocker. Mixed media on wood.
Dickens' A Christmas Carol will always be my favorite Victorian ghost story. And I'm resigned to the fact that Marley's Ghost, which terrified me as a kid, will always be an obsession. That spirit still gives me the chills, but also provides the reminder I seem to continually need: That "mankind is my business".
And thus, the Holiday Season begins.
