In a rather ironic turn of events, a statue in Santa Teresa Gallura, Italy, which was supposed to represent the Virgin Mary, has been viewed by the internet as instead looking like a rather crude body part.
Sculptor Maria Scanu may have hoped that the statue would promote a religious message, however most people are seeing it as anything but that.
The simplistic stone statue appears to be on top of a series of steps and takes the form of a strange diamond shape, with another diamond within it and a round ball at the top of it’s tip.
The accidentally risqué statue has amassed more than 34,700 upvotes and 1,800 comments on Reddit, with users flocking to the comments in confused amazement at how the statue is supposed to represent the religious figure. One wrote: ‘I think Maria knew exactly what she did.’
