Hundreds of people have been visiting a tree in West New York, N.J., because they say they see the image of the Virgin Mary carved into the bark.
A woman fist spied the small carving, measuring about 6 inches in length, on Tuesday. Now hundreds of people are coming by just to take a glimpse of the carving.
By nightfall on Tuesday, word began to spread and the faithful began to gather -- so much so police that had to put up barricades and station several officers there.
People here believe this carving resembles the Roman Catholic miracle known as Our Lady of Guadalupe, a vision of the virgin that appeared in Mexico.
Many in the crowd told Fox 5 that they believe the carving also holds mystical powers.
However others say the carving looks painted on or is the result of a tree branch falling off.
But people here say if you want to see what they see, you simply have to believe.
