English woman claims image of Jesus Christ appeared on washed sock
Traditional face of Christ disappeared when sock was removed from line
An English woman has claimed that the face of Christ has appeared to her - on the creases of a drying sock.
Sarah Crane, a 38-year-old resident of Orpington in Kent, told British newspapers that she was stunned when the image of Jesus stared back at her from her laundry line.
She called her boyfriend to look at the sock and he too agreed that the crumpled grey ‘holy sock’ bore an uncanny likeness to the traditional image of Christ.
The couple took photographs of the sock to show their friends and have now distributed them to the media.
They also spoke of creating a shrine to the sock at their home in Kent but had to shelve those plans when the face was lost after they moved the ‘holy sock’.
“I’d left the washing out to dry overnight - and it had probably been sitting there a bit too long when I noticed the face in the sock,” explained Sarah.
“I called my boyfriend over straight away - 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.
“I immediately took some pictures to show our family and friends - they all thought it was hilarious. We think it’s a bit of a sign - but for what we don’t know.
“We thought it would be good to make a little shrine for it - but unfortunately, when we moved it, the creases fell out a bit and the face isn’t quite as clear now.
“But you can still just about make out his face. Unfortunately, it’s not quite good enough to donate to our local church, but our friends have all been round to see it.”
The Kent sock is just the latest in a series of everyday objects on which people have claimed to seen Jesus.
Reports last year claimed an ivy-covered telegraph pole in Louisiana which was said to have looked like the crucified Christ while his face was seen in a Hungarian field spotted on Google Earth.
