Holy wood


An image in the trunk of a thorn tree in the garden of Sewdutt Maunick, at Burgess Hill, in Sussex. Mr Maunick, who is a non-practising Hindu and a humanist, told a local newspaper that, in 13 years, he had failed to notice that the image resembled the bearded face of Jesus crowned with thorns. It had suddenly become clear to him when he had sat at a different place in his garden. "Since my friends tell me they think it looks like Jesus, I am beginning to believe in it, too," Mr Maunick said.
