Have anything that scared you? Artwork, a piece of furniture, whatever?

Here is why I ask:

My mother had this painting.  She claims it was a woman sitting in a forest, with the leaves around her turning orange.  My childhood memory is a woman sitting in a forest that is on fire.  The woman in my memories has a look of utter despair on her face. 

I HATE this painting.  It is no longer in my mom's house.  It is in my sister's house. 

For years, this hung above my mom's bed.  Guess where I didn't go when I had bad dreams, especially the ones involving fire, which happened often.

I got that one time! I never repeated the infraction. Reasonable to fear that!

No but my grandparents had a ceramic old lady in a rocking chair with gray hair and glasses, peeling potatoes. Freaked me out for some reason. Not sure why though.

No but my grandparents had a tapestry of a deer in the forest and the woods behind the deer was very darkand looked scary. I used to think if I go too close, I'd get sucked in and be lost forever! I had quite an imagination. :)

Not my parents, but my grandparents had a swordfish mounted on a plaque in their basement. That thing scared the everloving sh*t out of my when I was a kid.
