Face of Jesus found on wall of Chinese takeaway

The Northern Echo: The wall of Mayho Chinese Takeaway in Sunderland The wall of Mayho Chinese Takeaway in Sunderland

The face of Jesus has been spotted at a Chinese takeaway.

Ian Ridley and Lawrence Boys were left shocked after coming face-to-face with the son of God while picking up some food.

As they waited outside the takeaway after a night out they noticed that peeling paint and dirt on the door appeared to form the face of Jesus.

Ian, 39, immediately took a snap at the Mayho Chinese Takeaway in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.

He said: "We were a little drunk at the time and went to get something to eat.

"We were waiting for our meal outside when we saw it.

"It was Jesus looking right at us, we were shocked and couldn't believe it.

"It's a miracle!

"The best thing about it is the face is actually facing the direction of St Luke's Church so it looks like it is supposed to be there.

"Since I took the picture, we have shown it to loads of people and all of them can see it instantly.

"It is amazing and they can’t believe it."

This isn't the first time a famous image has popped up somewhere strange.

In 2004, a decade-old cheese sandwich said to bear an image of the Virgin Mary sold on the eBay auction website for $28,000.

An internet casino bought the butty, which had not gone mouldy, from Diane Duyser, of Florida, and took it on world tour.

In 2003, an American hospital appealed to the Catholic Church for help after being swamped by thousands of people seeking to view what they believed was an image of the Virgin Mary in a third-floor window.

More than 25,000 people visited the Milton Hospital near Boston, Massachusetts, over one weekend as word of the likeness spread.

Attention focused on a medical office building where the likeness is reportedly formed by a leaking chemical deposit inside a sealed window.
