Papi in posa: papal portraiture...
Of course there is an art to posing for a portrait, even as a pope.
The Pope extends his right arm in benediction, showing his ring which is full of symbolism.
Would be nice to see the BXVI pose in this manner - three fingers raised in apostolic benediction!
This photo is from Foto Felici and has never before been published; I got it just after the Sede Vacante MMV.
