This question already has an answer here:
Is there any explanation about how the paintings are connected, so that people can walk from one painting to another? How can these imprints of dead people be transferred between paintings? If imprints can be moved away from their painting (frame as physical object), can they be bound to other objects as well (which are not paintings)? Must they be moved by a wizard/witch or is there a space (in another dimension) that connects them?
