The Catholic Culture Podcast: Episode 37 – Sculpting Two Benedicts

May 8, 2019

The young Italian sculptor Jago is best known to Catholics for
his marble bust of Pope Benedict XVI, which the Pope himself
awarded with a pontifical medal. Upon Benedict’s resignation, Jago
radically reworked the piece into its current form, We have a man. In this episode Jago discusses the meaning of marble,
how he had to teach himself because his art professors opposed
studying the great masters of the past, and his innovative use of
social media as a new, decentralized form of patronage.
