A great grandmother has accidentally been praying to a Lord of the Rings figure, thinking it was Saint Anthony.

The discovery was made by a woman whose daughter's great grandmother prays to the figurine each day.

Upon inspection, however, the woman, who lives in Brazil, realised that the figurine was of Elrond, an elf from Lord of the Rings, and not Saint Anothony.

She posted the realisation to Facebook, and it has since gone viral with over 3.5k shares.

"The funniest discovery of 2016," she wrote.

When Elrond and Saint Anthony are compared to each other, we can kind of see how she got confused. Kind of.
