Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said an image of his idol and predecessor, the late socialist leader Hugo Chavez, has appeared miraculously in the wall of an underground construction site.

In the latest incident, Maduro said Chavez's face had briefly appeared to workers building a new subway line in Caracas in the middle of the night.

"My hair stands on end just telling you about it," Maduro said on state TV late on Wednesday, showing a photo of a white-plaster wall with marks that appear like eyes and a nose. "Who is that face? That gaze is the gaze of the fatherland that is everywhere around us, including in inexplicable phenomena," added an awed Maduro, who won an April election to replace Chavez after his 14-year presidency.

Maduro's reverence for Chavez plays well with government supporters, who treat the charismatic former leader's memory with religious adoration. The 50-year-old Maduro, who mixes Catholic beliefs with a penchant for Asian spirituality, has been a devoted personal follower of Chavez since first meeting him at a jail in 1993.

Workers took the photo with a mobile phone during the image's brief appearance, the president added. "Just as it appeared, so it disappeared. So you see, what you say is right, Chavez is everywhere, we are Chavez, you are Chavez," Maduro said during an event shown on live TV.

umm yeah.... the similarity is astounding

So this image supposedly appeared for a brief time only then disappeared again.

Furthermore Mr Maduro says that in June Chavez tends to appear to him in the mountains that overlook Caracas.

well alrighty then.

...seriously, I am so sick and tired of stupid people...
If it isn't Nibiru, or ISON heralding the end of the world, it's Hugo Chavez showing up in a taco or Jesus and Mary on Google Earth.

Three cheers for matrixing! Seek and ye shall find.

It's sad that what they apparently want to see the most is Hugo Chavez. I guess they must really think he was good for them.

Venezuela have been attempting to Deify Chavez since his death, and they were already saying they would as he was dying. It's a propaganda campaign by the current government to ensure Chavez stays in the public psyche. As the current president was Chavez's vice-president, it'll probably be a pretty successful way of maintaining his own popularity.

The images now appearing in the streets of Venezuela leave no doubt about it. They don’t compare Chavez to Simon Bolivar -- the inspiration of the nation’s “comandante” -- but to Jesus Christ. And there are explicit slogans displayed that go further and deeper into Venezuelan reality: “The people are Chavez” and “We are all Chavez” -- like some modern miracle of transubstantiation.

Venezuela will deify Chavez even as crash looms

true, Mr Maduro is riding the Chavez coattails so to speak, he is thinking if he keeps it up he will be the next best thing to chavez supporters, what with the election coming up an all.
