In honor of his historic visit to The United States of America, today's post features Pope Benedict XVI. This figure, from the Wax Museum at Fisherman's Wharf, is a very realistic and detailed representation of his excellency. The outfit, and the facial features both accurately recreate the Pope with an artistry that the wax museum doesn't always capture.
From another angle, the figure displays something that you don't see in most religious wax figures, joy. He looks happy, and not as somber as most figures seem to. He truly looks as though he enjoys his role as spiritual leader of so many.
A close up highlights the detail in his face. They did a terrific job!
