Furthermore, in art theory the term fetishistic is sometimes used to describe repetitive marks in a painting and this too is sometimes a feature of the patient’s picture. Kris and Kurz (1979) describe incidents where works of art have been taken for ‘living beings’ and they also link the magical empowering of art objects with aesthetic experience. Therefore, when the art object is experienced as a fetish, it is not necessarily, nor solely linked to sexuality (although this is not excluded). The fetish, associated with a part of a person, is a sign; it stands for something outside of itself.

As a transactional object this picture was a fetish; it was a result of acting out of the unconscious state rather than a conscious enactment. The relationship to the picture was the dyadic client-picture-client-picture. This is different from the talisman which holds the feeling for another person in a conscious or semi-conscious manner and it is ‘an enactment in a culture’ (Schaverien 1991:152). Although it was associated with another person, the doctor, the picture did not hold a feeling state in relation to him.
