Photo Realistic

I made it down to the Basilica of St. Paul’s-outside-the-Walls today, after not having been there for I think over a year. So I snapped a photo of the mosaic of Pope Francis:

It is the most photo-realistic mosaic I’ve ever seen – or, at least the head part. I do rather wonder if they weren’t over budget in the Vatican mosaic workshop, and just did some sort of computer rendering of the head instead of doing it in real mosaic!
