Virgin Mary Image

Virgin Mary Image, originally uploaded by Dan Lilly.

An image of the Virgin Mary appeared in a knot in this tree beneath the white framed picture. The image was destroyed by a vandal with an axe but that doesn't stop the faithful from coming from all over the country.

I had heard about this and wanted to shoot this for some time but I had no idea that the shrine was so elaborate. Given that Salt Lake City is a Mormon town I thought that hard liners would destroy something like this.

Faith can rebuild itself over anything if it's strong enough. Or crazy enough!
