Serial Catter Series #3 KITTY GEIN ACRYLIC

Kitty Gein  depicts Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein.  The psychopath is shown in his most famous attire – red and black plaid hunter’s cap, button up shirt, and dark grey coat.  Gein murdered two women (Mary Hogan and Bernice Worden) in his hometown of Plainview and exhumed several bodies in local cemeteries.  He kept the body parts and various other items to serve as trophies and keepsakes around his farmhouse.  Authorities found a long list of items in the house crafted from human remains.  Among them were lampshades made from human skin, a belt made from human nipples, bowls made from human skulls, and nine vulvae in a shoe box.  Ed Gein inspired such movies as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and the character Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs.
