Mother Mary is fit to be Tie-dyed

Here’s a way to get your shirts to sell better. Say the art is from the hand of God.

Man says Virgin Mary appears in tie dye t-shirt – Sarasota News | and ABC 7: Local News.

“I have a basic idea of what the shirts going to look like but I tell every one God does he real art work because where the shirt folds and how the dye runs is up to him and it often makes different images,” said Tim Symonds.

He says , this time the image created from the unpredictable tie dye process appears to be that of the mother of Jesus. “When I unfolded the shirt I noticed mother Mary was in the center of one the shirts by the heart,” Symonds added.

Well of course you can see faces in tie-dye – faces are symmetrical and tie-dye is like a Rorschach test. It’s a bit irritating when these articles focus on it either IS or ISN’T a picture of the thing the person says it is. The third option is the correct one: It’s pareidolia. We see faces and familiar images in lots of things – it’s the way our brain works.
