Granny praying to St Anthony figurine didn't realise it was actually Elrond from Lord Of The Rings

This granny didn't realise the figurine she prayed to daily was actually Elrond from Lord Of The Rings

This is far from the first time we’ve witnessed grandparents do something hilariously adorable and it’s been shared for all the internet to see. But this might be one of the best yet…

Gabriela Brandao, a make-up artist from Brazil, posted three photos on Facebook at the end of last week for the world to enjoy.

In the first photo, she shows a tiny figurine, to which her daughter’s great-grandmother prays every day. She believes it’s Saint Anthony, see.

But, when Gabriela looks closer she realises the figurine looks remarkably like someone else. Any ideas who?

Ah, that’s it! Elrond from Lord Of The Rings. Of course.

Gabriela later found a seemingly identical figurine for sale on the internet – yep, we’re pretty sure her daughter’s great-grandmother has been praying to an elf.

With their similar-coloured robes, they could be twins… kinda? *squints*

OK, nope, this is definitely the sort of mishap only grandparents could get away with. Bless.
