image for Image of Munch's 'The Scream' materialises on Jerusalem's Wailing Wall
Close up of the Wall before the hexoplasmic appearance

Israel - A spooky emanation of Edvard Munch's 1895 pastel drawing has sprung up overnight on Jerusalem's foremost prayer shrine The Wailing Wall.

The apparition 'just popped out of the brickwork' according to one eyewitness whose long distance camera lens snapped it from the top of the Mound of Olives tapas bar nearby.

Mossad sources immediately dubbed it a karmic synchronicity from a parallel universe due to events taking place at a New York auction house last night.

This saw the most colorful of Munch's four copies of 'The Scream' sell for $119.9m (£74m) to an anonymous bidder, suspected of being the spouse of a Spoof writer in London.

The last time that similar paranormal activity occurred in Jerusalem's holy site was when Jamaican musician Bob Marley died on 11 May 1981 and a 3-D image of his band The Wailers suddenly popped up under an eclipsed fool moon.

Yesterday's hexoplasmic sighting sees the art world scurrying around searching for clues of the Munch picture buyer's ID.

Commenting on the sudden X-files emanation a QM-NewsCorpse stringer said 'Normally he buys her baubles and bling, so this latest picture purchase foray's a bit of a mystery'.

National Portrait Gallery curator Sir Pollock Brouhaha is gobsmacked with disbelief.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
