On the list of things that all people are skilled at, there would certainly be finding patterns in random images. This phenomena called Pareidolia is what enables humans to see a face on mars or a friend’s face in a sea of people. It enables ancient humans to survive, seeing patterns like the constellations that guide them in migration.
Needless to say, seeing patterns in random scenarios helps humans in various ways.
This one certainly helped the Christian community feel a little more closer to their faith.
A statue in the sky
A man from Italy named Alfredo Lo Brutto has managed to capture a majestic photo of the town of Agropoli’s sky last March 1.
His Facebook photo shows a gap between the afternoon clouds that formed a shape resembling the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil called Christ the Redeemer.
“I was enchanted by the view,” Brutto said.
“I don’t often share pictures on social media, but when I took this one, I instantly felt like I wanted other people to see it because it was so beautiful,” he added.
Well, he’s not wrong. The portion of the sky that he captured was breathtaking. Aside from the whole, the golden rays of the sun looked very visible, like it was a physical being that wants to touch the water.
It must be very easy to feel spiritual when you’re one of the people who saw that weather phenomenon in person, especially for devout Christians.
For Barbara di Palma, a local Italian reporter, other people might see a different shape. In a tweet, he featured Brutto and his photo that reached places across the world and asked:
“For Alfredo Lo Brutto it is Christ the Redeemer who walks on the waters of Agropoli. What do you see in this shot?”
Can you see a different shape in that sky other than a statue of Jesus? Tell us in the comments below, and don’t forget to share this to your friends.
