Ivan Stoiljkovic has a certain magnetism . . . and here are the pictures to prove it.
The six-year-old has an extraordinary talent: the ability to attract metallic objects -- from spoons to heavy frying pans -- to his body.
The Croatian youngster, who displayed his unique gift for photographers yesterday, is said to be able to carry up to 25kg of metal stuck to his torso.
Ivan's family also claims that his hands can emit heat and his mysterious ability has also given him healing powers.
Medical check-ups on the boy, who lives in Koprivnica, some 100 kilometres north of the capital Zagreb, have so far come up with inconclusive results, say officials.
