In the movie IT (2017), Stanley Uris's dad hangs a picture of woman with her face distorted in his office.

I am wondering why his father does it

  1. His father hangs it due to personal preference, if this is the case, I will be a bit disappointed as there is no depth in the story on this picture.
  2. His father does not hang it, it is an illusion only visible to Stanley Uris.
  3. His father does not want it hang it, Pennywise somehow manages to influence his mind to hang it.

Is it possible for Stephen King to have explained it in the original novel? Any ideas?

    This picture does not exist in the original book. Stan gets scared by drowned kids at the Derry water tower. – BlueMoon93 Dec 23 '17 at 10:27

    Hmm. I think it might be number 2 with some alterations. There might be a normal portrait of a lady and Pennywise made the face look distorted to Stanley. Although I'm not absolutely sure about it. – HardikT Dec 24 '17 at 5:44
