Praying Hands Burn Down…

I posted last year about a 62′ Praying Hands statue that we’d seen while driving Interstate 75 home from Ohio –

Since then, I learned a little more.   I learned that one nickname for the statue is Touchdown Jesus.  Another,  Big Butter Jesus because of its resemblance to butter sculptures often found at the State Fair-

There is even a funny song written about the statue-

My husband told me this past weekend that ‘Touchdown Jesus’ was struck  by lightening and burned down-

Wow, just like that, a huge 62′ statue, sure to grab your attention as you’re driving down the highway, is no more.
