Either I can't see it or it doesn't look human to me. Looks like some kind of alien or animal head on "Mary". The "baby" is just an amorphous blob.

Yeah, there's not much to see. Which makes all that devotional circus – and that's the point of the video, for me: the people – look not only ludicrous but really, really stupid.
