Virgin Mary chalk drawing reappears 13 yrs on

Until now, nobody had seen the drawing since 2007. Image Credit: Twitter / @palomofelixtv
A chalk drawing of the Virgin Mary has mysteriously reappeared 13 years after it had faded away.
The drawing, which had been created in an outdoor parking lot in the city of Monterrey, Mexico during festival celebrations in 2007, had originally only lasted around three weeks before the chalk had faded to the point where it was no longer visible and it was ultimately forgotten about.

Remarkably however, members of the public began to notice recently that the image had reappeared some 13 years after its original creation and nobody has been able to explain how, especially given its exposure to the elements and the fact that cars have constantly been driving over it all that time.

Photographs of the artwork have since attracted a lot of attention on social media and crowds of people have been flocking to the parking lot to view it for themselves.
Some have attributed the phenomenon to divine intervention and have left candles and flowers.

Felix Palomo, who is the director of Culture of the municipality of Guadalupe, has posted images of the spectacle on Twitter in the hope of finding answers.

"Whether you believe in miracles or not, the question is how did this image reappear 13 years after its creation ?" he wrote.

So far however, no conclusive explanation for the phenomenon has been forthcoming.

See my post to LG. It applies even more strongly to you  You have misrepresented and lied about my posts for over a decade.  I am still not clear if this is a flaw  with your thinking and comprehension, (ie you honestly can't understand the points i am making, and  hence  often rephrase/ repost them  as the opposite to what i posted)  or something less honest.

But, if it was on a ceiling everyone would lose their minds. On the surface, that's biased.

true. For the first year or so,  when i came to UM, people tried to debate me on my facts and logic  Only when this failed did the y resort to personal attacks on my intelligence, neediness, character flaws etc  You are doing much the same   laughing rather than rebutting . Almost every complaint about me  "hijacking a thread " occurs after such personal attacks and comments, and when i then respond to them. posters complain when i reference myself but are happy to reference me personally  rather than my posts.   Basically my experiences in life are so different to many that...

@OverSword Wtf, No, Indians and Japanese are not the same goddamn 'race', they're from ASIA which is roughly 44.58 million km� in size, they're literally so far apart. so no, they're not the same 'race' you idiot.

Know what I love about these "miracles?"  That Jesus or Mary can (supposedly) take the time to blast out a chalk drawing that reappears for years, but won't prevent a child from being molested by a priest.
