Lost Sinister Portrait

Guy Fawkes was an unused character who would have appeared in the Haunted Mansion.

Description

Portrait

In a piece of Marc Davis concept art for portraits, Guy Fawkes is shown surrounded by kegs of gunpowder.

Background

Guy Fawkes was a 16th-17th century historic figure who attempted to use kegs of gunpowder to blow up British Parliament in an effort to assassinate King James I due to the King's laws which banned the practice of non-Protestant faiths. Before being able to destroy the building, however, Fawkes was captured and hung to death for treason. In British urban culture Guy Fawkes's soul is believed to be a ghost due to how failed to see the gunpowder plot through.
