Grandmother spends years praying to Lord of the Rings elf after believing it to be Saint Anthony
They do look a bit similar...
- bythat's life!
Gabriela Brandao could not contain her amusement when she discovered that her devout grandmother had spent years praying to a statue she thought was of Saint Anthony of Padua only to learn it was in fact Elrond, the Lord of Rivendell, played in the Lord of the Rings films by Aussie actor Hugo Weaving.
Sharing the photo of the figurine to Facebook, Gabriela calls it the ‘funniest discovery of 2016.’
