COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, April 26 (UPI) -- An Idaho man says he believes a rock formation in his backyard is a divine sign, and worth at least a few earthly bucks on eBay.

Paul Grayhek, 52, of Coeur d'Alene, listed the rock formation he calls "Hand of God Rock Wall" on the Internet auction site and had a high bid of $250 as of early Sunday, CNN reported.

The formation looks like a 9-feet tall hand and appeared in Grayhek's backyard after a rockslide. He says the shape and the fact it showed up during the Christian season of Lent added up to a "symbol the hand of God in my life."

"People think I'm some holier-than-thou person trying to get rich. I'm not," Grayhek said. "The purpose is to spread the story of God and eBay is just a vehicle."

The winning bidder won't get the actual rock formation but will have exclusive rights to it.
