The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good.
There has been much speculation over the years about the history of the two pieces of “art” Dick Hallorann has hanging above his bed and television in The Shining.
The source for the piece above his television has finally been discovered: It is a photo taken in the early 1970’s that was sold as a poster titled “Supernatural Dream”. The model is named Azizi Johari, and she has this to say on her Facebook page:
“It’s on the wall in Scatman Crothers’ room in the movie ‘The Shining’. The one over the tv definitely is my poster. It’s called ‘Supernatural Dream’. It freaked me out when I saw the shot in the movie!”
