A great-grandmother from Brazil has accidentally been praying to a figurine of a Lord Of The Rings character, she was mistaking it for a figure of Saint Anthony, the late Portuguese priest and patron saint of lost things.
Gabriela Brandão, a make-up artist from Sao Paulo but who lives in Florianópolis, took to Facebook to post the discovery last week.
She wrote, “My daughter’s great-grandmother prays to this figure of Saint Anthony every day, but looking more closely…”, before revealing that it is actually a toy of Elrond, an elf from Lord of the Rings. She called it the “funniest discovery of 2016”
It was SUPPOSED to be a figure of Saint Anthony. But only after looking more closely at it, Gabriela realized something wasn’t right about the figurine this woman was devotedly praying to.
