Replica Report : The Phantom Foetus

Ultrasound. Heather and Toby Large

Unlike any other art form, Extractionism is the only one to be covered regularly by the news today. Metro, of the UK, features Extractionist Heather Large and her Recognition of the Emperor Palpatine.

It all began about a year ago when an ultrasound scan of an unborn baby revealed an eerie resemblance to the evil emperor from Star Wars, and is now, with the help of the Internet, gaining widespread attention.

Heather Large, 39, immediately spotted the seemingly cloaked figure glaring back at her from a scan in the 20th week of her pregnancy – can you see the claw-like left hand?

Husband Toby, 33, from Illinois, said: ‘During the ultrasound, Heather noticed that one of the images appeared to look like Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars.

‘At this point, everyone in the room had a laugh, including our eight-year-old daughter Hannah and the ultrasound technician.

‘At the end of the ultrasound, the tech asked us if we would like to include that image on our take-home CD, since we were so amused.’

Toby’s son Bowie, now eight months old, captivated the imagination of Star Wars fans when he uploaded it to his Devian art webpage last week, causing a stir.
