SCULPTURAL PORTRAITS OF POPE FRANCIS

MARBLE BUST AND SEVEN ENDLESS MOMENTS OF POPE FRANCIS IN BRONZE

Mik has been bestowed the honour of getting, as the only sculptor, personal consent from Pope Francis to create his sculptural portrait in stone.
To present the image of the spirit of the Holy Father in stone as well as possible, he has made seven different portrait studies in bronze, the largest series in the history of the Vatican. Portraits attempt to depict different states of His spirit and are therefore named the »Seven Endless Moments of Pope Francis«. One of that images Mik carved into Carrara marble and gave the bust to the Holy Father at the private audience in june 2019.
