Grandmother Has Been Praying To A “Lord Of The Rings” Figurine For Years

Grandmother Has Been Praying To A “Lord Of The Rings” Figurine For Years

Denim on denim. Mixing the grain with the grape. Reheating last nights kebab. All mistakes we have made and lived to regret. Yep we all make silly mistakes but this one is actually pretty unusual.

A freelance make up artist from Brazil named Gabriela Brandão, took to Facebook in December to share a story about her great grand mother.

Her great grandma who is pretty religious prays regularly. However upon close inspection, Gabriela realised that her relative’s figurine of ‘Saint Anthony’ was actually of ‘Elrond’ from Lord of the Rings.

Yep her nan had been praying to a character from Lord of the Rings.

The post translates to: “The funniest discovery of 2016: My daughter’s great-grandmother prays to this figure of Saint Anthony every day, but looking more closely…”

Speaking to BuzzFeed, Gabriela said: “We tried to explain right away but she didn’t understand at first.

“The next day we explained again and she understood and we got her a new figure of Saint Anthony.”

This is what the real St Anthony figure looks like. Easy mistake to make.

Aw well I’m sure she will be forgiven as her heart is in the right place.
