I noticed that there's a painting in the prison cafeteria. It's near the wall by the save point. Anyone know what it is? I couldn't make it out too well.

It's within itself, within itself, within itself...

It's the prison's cafeteria.

You should see the paintings in the first prison cell. As you enter the prison go to the first door on your right, it's not locked and its safe. I'ved played this from easy to hard and had no problems looking at the pictures.

That's scary, I'm wondering the meaning of that painting, if it has any.

It's James not being able to see past (or through). He's trapped within his own dillusions. And because he's in the prison, there's no escape...

Hey, thanks, didn't notice that the painting was inside the painting. Trapped in a neverending maze? A clue that James's suffering will never end? That is, if it really is the same painting. Are you sure?

You can also notice a person (James?) at the bottom-right corner of the picture, staring at the whole room and picture itself; seems like James looking into an infinite overview, exactly like an abyss.

okay..... now's as good a time as any to bring this up.....

it's my understanding that "burning man" is supposed to represent the Hotel burning down. But what is the "concert" looking one supposed to represent? and PLEASE, for the love of god what is that ridiculous "woman in flight" one supposed to mean?

i've been a silent hill fan since 1999, and i've religiously lurked around these forums almost daily (although i don't post much), but those two paintings coupled with the whole "Miriam K. -- Traitor" thing have eluded me for years. can anyone help give me some insight?

[spoiler]Actually...I think it looks like the guy Eddie killed there? I mean, he's in the same spot, position..everything...? If I'm right, then it's even weirder. [/spoiler]

Not sure if I needed to spoiler that or not.

Heh, that's how I was going to describe it, in my last post - great minds think alike, eh? 8)

> That is, if it really is the same painting. Are you sure?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure.

And thanks, I didn't notice the guy in the bottom right corner; I was too busy looking into the abyss :wink:

From what I see, I'm positive that the guy on the bottom-right corner of the first picture is the same as the corpse in the real world. Creepy.... But who is that anyway? :shock:

[spoiler]You can se blood on the table - that makes me think the corpse is already there where it should be. The figure just looks like James standing on that side of the room, at present time (after Eddie "killed" (?) the guy and exit the room).[/spoiler]

Wow, this is deep. But I also think it's the corpse on the table, not only because of the blood, but because he's wearing the saame blue jacket as the corpse.

I understand where you're coming from, but I doubt it's James. It looks slumped over, which is what's making me assume it's the body...
Although, the more I look at it, the more I think it is him. It looks like it's wearing what James is wearing.....Possibly yet another meaning coinciding with the one with the TV in the first set of apartments? :D

No, that has more to do with the cutscene in the hotel room :)

I don't think that corpse is James.
