Based on a photograph in a 1920 volume entitled Physical Phenomena of Mediumnism, that shows a Polish medium, Stanislawa Tomczyk, in the process of levitating a pair of scissors. The medium herself is a ghostly image, painted in part with mica on a support of painted fabric. At the right, the canvas has been split vertically by a slit two feet or more in length, as if with the medium’s scissors.
