A great grandmother has accidentally been praying to a Lord of the Rings figurine

She’s now an internet sensation.

YOU MIGHT REMEMBER Elrond from the Lord of the Rings movies – one of the mighty elf-rulers of old.

He’s inadvertently become embroiled in a rather brilliant Facebook sensation in Brazil this week.

As Buzzfeed reports, Gabriela Brandao supposedly made an interesting discovery last week: “My daughter’s great-grandmother prays to this figure of Saint Anthony every day”

She took a closer look at this supposed Saint Anthony

And discovered that it’s actually Elrond from the famous franchise

Her Facebook post discovering this has, naturally, exploded in her native Brazil – and has since been picked up by Buzzfeed and spread from there. She simply captioned it:

The funniest discovery of 2016

Looking at the real Saint Anthony statue though, it’s probably an easy mistake to make

Brown robes, belt, hair… he has it all.
