And now, six months after his death, some of his bizarre artwork have been unveiled.

One of the pictures, called "Michael", shows the 'Thriller' star striking the same pose as Michelangelo's statue of David with just a loincloth covering his privates.

In the picture, he has marble-white skin and he is surrounded by male cherubs.

Another painting 'Field Of Dreams', shows Jackson, who died in June aged 50, leading children along a yellow brick road.

The paintings were done by US artist David Nordahl, 68, who denied claims they were so-called "paedo art".

"These paintings are a way of seeing how Michael would like to have seen himself," the Daily Star quoted David as saying. (ANI)
