Glorification of the Reign of Pope Urban VIII

Since there is currently no Pope at the Vatican, with Pope Benedict having recently resigned, and another Pope is soon to be chosen, we thought we'd share this beautiful artwork with appropriate timing.

Glorification of the Reign of Pope Urban VIII was created for the ceiling of the Palazzo Barberini in Rome.

Pietro da Cortona (1596-1669)
Undeniably, incredible work.
