PiusXII12.jpg(220 × 279 pixels, file size: 6 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)


English: A photo that Ambrosius007 ( talk) made from a picture from Madre Pascalina Lehnert, who owned it and gave him copyright rights. She writes that Pope Pius XII, who disliked most paintings of himself, saw this picture in a much larger version and said, "this is actually me". The small picture was donated to Pascalina Lehnert by the English painter Boden in 1956?. The much much larger version of it, with Pope Pius XII sitting on a throne, was completed at the same time in the Vatican and is somewhere in England. That picture has its own copyright. (Pascalina Lehnert, Ich durfte ihm dienen, p.171)
