A Great-Grandmother Has Accidentally Been Praying To This ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Figurine


A great-grandmother in Brazil has made the most adorable mistake of 2017 so far by praying to a Lord Of The Rings figurine that she thought was St Anthony, a Christian saint.

As reported by Buzzfeed News, Gabriela Brandão posted images of the figurine to her Facebook account when she realised that the precious figure her grandmother prayed to every day was not as eh, authentic, as it seemed.

Yep… If you look closely you will spot that it is in fact Elrond, one of the elves from the legendary Tolkien trilogy.

After noticing the pointy ears on the figurine of her grandmother’s ‘St Anthony’, Gabriela searched for it online and found an exact replica of the figurine – which clearly states its Lord Of The Rings heritage.
