The gaffer tape Pope!

As careless with an image of Christ as he is with his Church. Is he going to try and repair the fissures that come out after the Synod with gaffer tape.

After the Synod, Francis will need duck tape:

If it can hold the San Andreas Fault together...

A quick spray of silver paint over the tape and nobody would have noticed the difference!

Am I allowed not to like the quasi-Giacometti Jesus figure or is that a standard interpretation?

Frayed cassock, broken ferula, he needs looking after better, or maybe it is just the 'lio' that surrounds him

The rest of the reel of tape should be deployed over that extemporising pontifical mouth whenever the press are lurking on aeroplanes looking for a feel-good sound bite.......... but, then again, who am I to judge?

The tape is simply a bit of innvovative 'brutalist' art and design - a meaningful comment on the revolutionary brutalism of the Paul VI ferula and how such a revolutionary muse can apply instant sticky tape solutions to all problems.

Paul VI publicly accepted this portrait in the early 70s -

- painted by a man Paul VI had invited to his audiences for over two years. Do you see what I see?
