Some people spend half their lives looking for their personal savior. One guy found him while shopping.

Dave Simons, 33, was at an Ikea in Glasgow, Scotland, when he made a pit stop in the restroom. He looked at the door and saw the outline of a familiar-looking face.

"I went in to the toilet and there it was on the main door when I put my hand out. I said, 'Oh my word, it's Jesus,'" Simons told the Daily Mail. "I tried to subtly snap a photo because the last thing you want is to be heard taking a photo in a toilet."

It's no Spanish fresco, but there's definitely some kind of curious beardedness wrought in the grain of the wood.

Frankly, it might have been a little more exciting if the image had shown up in Simons' Norden or Valje or Ivar. At least the door didn't require any convoluted assembly.

Here's a zoomed-out view of his discovery.

Many, many people have claimed to find divine inspiration in unlikely objects. In fact, we've got a slideshow devoted to the phenomenon.

Sacred Sightings?

Suffice it to say, it's all in the eye of the beholder.
