Pareidolia of the Day: 38-year-old Sarah Crane of Orpington in Kent was retrieving her laundry after leaving it outside to dry overnight, when she noticed the face of Jesus Christ winking back at her from the wrinkles in one of her socks.
“I called my boyfriend over straight away,” she says. “We could both clearly see the face of Jesus in the sock. There is a straight-on face and a side profile too. We couldn’t believe it.”
Crane and her beau were planning to construct a shrine for the sock, but as soon as they moved it, the creases shifted and the face fell apart.
“[Y]ou can still just about make out his face,” Crane said. “Unfortunately, it’s not quite good enough to donate to our local church but our friends have all been round to see it.”
