Pope John XXIII

 

      This bust of Pope John XXIII was commissioned by a sculpture fabricator to be mass produced and handpainted for distribution, unknown to me at the time, for Buca di Beppo Restaurants. Seeing years later the results of the hand painting of the flesh tones led me to take artistic control of the process for subsequent busts of Pope Benedict XVI and of Pope Francis, this time working directly for the cleint.
