Pope

107 x 98 cm
Acrylics and oil on Canvas

He wasn't particularly old but had a mental disturbance that made him unable to lead a life on his own. His cap in the drawing reminded me of the Dome of florence and thus the idea of making him into a Pope came about. Being such a kind, humble, ingenious smiling person almost like a child it seemed proper to manifest this innocence as opposed to popes in the past. Also, there are hints of a gayish personality.
