TENNESSEE – A Tennessee woman is trying to solve the mystery behind a figurine she found inside a garden gnome.

She discovered the object after accidentally dropping the gnome on the sidewalk and breaking it open.

Heather Andrews has a friend who always gives he garden gnomes.

It’s a gag between them, but this time this gnome was carrying a gag of its own.

Take a look for yourself. There appears to be a statue inside the gnome that was formed at the time of the making of the gnome. It’s fused to the top and to the bottom. 


Some people are saying it’s the head of Jesus on a woman’s body, or even an angel.

“I just want to know where it came from, why they put it there. I live in a small town, so a lot of my friends have seen it,” said Andrews. 

A nice little mystery, isn’t it?

Who would go to all the trouble of creating a statue that, barring catastrophe, no one would ever see?

“People have told me that gnomes represent guardians of treasure. That may be his treasure…inside him,” said Andrews.
