The image was spotted in the northern town of Magangue on Sunday (05.04.20), as a shape resembling the face of Jesus can be seen on the trunk of the tree and the position of the branches meant the figure appeared to be being crucified.

Crowds of people have queued up to get a closer look, despite being in lockdown due to the ongoing pandemic.

Rafael Rodriguez, a journalist with El Tiempo newspaper, said: ''Dozens of people are gathered here.

''They are here to see the figure of what they say or believe is the figure of Christ, they have forgotten about coronavirus and are currently here looking at this figure.''

Many are praying to the figure in the hope that it will end the coronavirus crisis.

Local shopkeeper Agustina Diaz said: ''It can clearly be seen.

''Everybody is praying and asking for Earth to be cured of this evil and for Magangue to be protected.''
