A Utah man claims to see the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus in a piece of wood.

Dean Hansen made the discovery about six weeks ago when he and his uncle were chopping pinyon pine wood in central Utah for tent posts and firewood, Salt Lake City TV station KSTU reported.

"When we first saw it, we were like 'Wow,'" Hansen told the station.

He said he's keeping the piece of wood in a safe place as he decides whether to put it on display.
