Yorkshire, UK

AS the eve of Halloween draws close villagers across a 100 mile stretch of Yorkshire are grateful that Police have uncovered the identity of the 'mystery' man. Leaving as many as 20 giant carved heads on village doorsteps. Firsts reports emerged when Fiona Gould who runs a local hotel found one on her patio, she said, "some people think it's a curse, but we have no idea who we might have offended. One woman claimed there is a link to werewolves."

Each of the foot high stones had the hand written rhyme "Twinkle, twinkle like a star. Does love flourish from afar?"

Valirie who runs the Post Office in the village of Braithwell discovered her stone head on the doorstep "there a bit like a gargoyle, they are very bizarre." After reviewing security footage she said "this chappie just drove up at 4.15 in the morning parked his car and dropped off these stone heads."

The mystery heightened and focused on Yorkshire Stone carver Billy Johnson and One to One productions. Together they have been exploring 'hypnagogia' the state of being half awake, and it is in this time that the faces appear to him. After more detective work Billy Johnson and One to One admitted responsibility for the appearance of the heads which were created for a project to explore modern folk-law and traditional craft skills with new media and web based technology.
