This is an original linoleum print that I created for the Art Of Resistance Conference in Seattle, Washington, 2005. Leading up to the Iraq war the then Pope John Paul voiced his opposition to the war. I am not Catholic so I did not regard the Pope in any way yet I did respect him for opposing the war which of course put him directly against the Bush Administration effort of lies and deceit. Unfortunately, he conveniently died before he could a mass the whole of the Catholic Nation against the immoral war. Thus was this image inspired.
