Face of Jesus appears on log

The face of Jesus has been very busy, appearing on chicken feathers, a tea towel and a drainpipe among many other places – and it's come to light that it's also turned up on the end of a wooden log.

The log's owner, Mel Robertson, calls it the 'holy log' and says that she keeps it as a 'lucky charm'.

However, she admits that it 'hasn't brought any luck yet', but is hopeful that one day it will.

Fingers crossed, Mrs Robertson.

The mum of two from Solihull told Metro.co.uk that the face first appeared back in October 2009, but got clearer and clearer as the months went by.

She said: 'We had some firewood by the fireplace – at first it looked like a skull and crossbones – but as the months wore on, it just appeared around the knot in the wood. It was a dark mark and the sap made the face of Jesus – it came up more and more.'

Mrs Robertson says the log actually helps to cheer her up and her two kids love it. 'They think it's hilarious,' she said.

The local vicar, who's seen a photo of it, is just as tickled. 'He thinks it's hilarious, too,' said Mrs Robertson, 41.

She added: 'I'm not sure it's a sign – but I thought it would have faded by now.'
