Grandma Accidentally Prays to Elrond

A Brazilian grandmother has an icon in her home that she prays to every day. Gabriela Brandao noticed and asked about it. The elderly woman said she was praying to St. Anthony. Brandao took a close look at the figure and thought it looked familiar. St. Anthony isn't supposed to have pointy ears, is he? She checked on the internet to confirm what she thought, and found an exact duplicate of the figure for sale -a figure of Elrond, Lord of Rivendell, a character from The Lord of the Rings. Brandao's relative had been praying to an elf! Since Brandao posted the pictures, the grandmother has received a new figurine -one depicting St. Anthony.
