An angel with its clearly delineated lines appeared imposing over the mouth of the Galien River and New Buffalo Lake, in the city of Michigan, United States.

And from the very moment that the images and a video were uploaded to social networks, the controversy was unleashed: was it formed naturally and is it a divine message, or did human hands have to do with this figure that seems sculpted?

For believers, it’s about the divine manifestation of an angel. Others, however, are of the opinion that it could actually have been made by the locals.
