Abstract
Description
In the center of the photograph, light illuminates the mosaic medallion of Pope Francis in the nave of the Papal Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls (Rome, Italy). All of the popes throughout history are represented in the nave. To the right of Pope Francis is his predecessor, Benedict XVI. Blank medallions are available to the left of Pope Francis for representations of future popes. In the foreground of the photograph, the 80 massive granite Corinthian columns of the nave are easy to compare to the size of the tourists.
