The image appeared at the One Stop Body Shoppe, a low-impact weight loss clinic for women, after a rain storm.
“A client was laying here looking up and told me, Michelle, you have Jesus on your ceiling. I just kind of looked at her, and she said you do, Jesus on the ceiling,” said Michelle Beech, Manager.
“I think its the silhouette and kind of a partial beard,” said Dominique Sartin, Body Shoppe staff member. “She said if it had leaked a little more it would be a beard on the other side too.”
So is seeing believing?
“Believing is believing. Regardless of what you see,” said Sartin.
And a money maker is a money maker. They’re considering selling the water stained tile on eBay. I hope the money they get for the sale goes towards actually fixing the leaky roof.
This face in the drywall, though:
John and Omar have been doing this kind of work for 30 years or more and they’ve never seen anything like this. “I’m not a religious man by any means, I mean, I believe in God and stuff like that but when I seen that, that’s the first thing to come to my mind.”
His brother-in-law is not so sure. “It’s just open to personal interpretation of what you see. I do see a face. As far as putting what that face looks like, I don’t want to go that route,” says Gissendanner.
Whatever it is or looks like, one thing is certain according to Gissendanner, “For drywall finishing this was a pretty exciting day.”
Other people who have seen the image agree it looks familiar. Many think it does look like Jesus but, Moses, Sasquatch and Charlie Manson have also been mentioned as possibilities.
I think it looks more like Edgar Allen Poe. But, I approve of the brother-in-law’s rational outlook here. He’s not swayed by religious fervor. It’s a stain that maybe looks a little like something. So can clouds, so can tree bark, so can rotting grapes.
