    • Host: To those amongst you with a predilection toward antique collection or the occasional bargain hunting that takes place in out-of-the-way nooks and stalls, this painting suggests a certain required wariness when it comes to your shopping. Because there are moments when, behind some dusty book or in a cobwebbed corner of an ancient vestibule, you'll uncover a little objet d'art which can horrify the heck out of you. Such being the case in this painting, when a lady goes junking about and uncovers a mythological statue that has lived past its time and intrudes on hers. We call the painting The Last Rites for a Dead Druid.
