Cool. Who is it supposed to be?

"Nice" is the word -- boring, bland crap.
Very nice! Is it supposed to be Paul VI? Notice the crucifix-staff that he began using...
I wish that we could find a copy of the photo Duane Galles had commissioned for The Boss. The one that hangs in the sacristy...
Painting at San Tommaso in Formis on Caelian Hill. Painted in 1971 by A. Pel Vecchio. Of Pope Innocent III with St. John of Matha.
The tiara the Pope is wearing in the painting certainly looks like the one Pope Paul VI received for his coronation and later gave to the people of the United States to raise money for charity.
