FOREST, Va. (AP) -- A smudge of driveway sealant resembling the face of Jesus Christ has fetched more than $1,500 in an online auction. The family that found the image on its garage floor sold it for $1,525.69 on eBay Wednesday, more than a week after the slab of concrete was put on sale.

''I really never thought I'd get any, to be honest,'' said Deb Serio, a high school teacher.

''It's fun to see what people say and think about it,'' said Serio, who has gotten hundreds of messages from around the world.

The family has hired a contractor to remove the section of concrete. The chunk will be turned over to the winner, identified only as ''islandoffthecoast.''

An active Lutheran, Serio considers the smudge just an odd occurrence -- not a sign or miracle.

''There are some people who need this kind of thing to sort of start them on their faith journey. I don't,'' she said. ''That's why I don't mind parting with it.''

If you were to have your readers guess who the picture was, I would've guessed Che Guevara.
