To make things worse... The head of poor Jesas looked like a skull, not sure what an artist tried to imply with this feature...

Hello Most Evil One. The question is: What is on the Archbishop's mind; about what is he thinking? In the fore ground, a black Jesus, draped in a red and gold skirt is suspended above. There must be something symbolic about that. The Archbishop looks straight ahead, avoiding looking up that skirt in fear that he may be accused of being some kind of religious pervert. He should get off so lightly. It could just be with all the scandals of the priests abusing young boys that Jesus wears that religious red robe to symbolize the Church's effort to absolve themselves of their sins. It just was not enough that Jesus died on the cross for all our sins ... in this church, it looks like he has to take the blame for the clergy's abuse as well. Poor Jesus. Oy. Michael.
