in Brescia Cathedral (Part 2)
The right plate
The problem is the right plate.
The left part
A monster like grotesque insect with many legs is attacking the back of Pope Paul VI with something like ice ax. This cannot be something else.
Do you recognize this
abnormality? Is this
This part seems to be given a title, “L'attentato a Manila (The attempt at Manila)”. However, to listen to such an “explanation” is like to go to be hung to the web of deception voluntarily.
The bottom part
(I turned this upside-down because this part had put the head of this person toward below.)
What's this? What does this mean? Who is this man? He seems to be suffering very much.
Is this some symbolic expression which represents human common suffering?
No, this is a monument for Pope Paul VI. Therefore, he is Pope Paul VI.
Then, is this some symbolic expression which represents mainly the mental suffering of the Pope? No, to my eyes, rather, it looks like his physical suffering.
And anyway, regardless of what kind of exact meaning this plate has, this design is very strange by all means as a monument dedicated to an admirable person, Pope. Don't you think so?
And this part is strange at the very first point. Namely, this part had turned the Pope's head toward below. Who on earth would want to put the figure of Pope upside-down? This is the lack of respect, clearly.
The right part
To my eyes, the meaning of this part seems to be considerably clear. This hand broke Mitra of Pope Paul VI into two pieces. Namely, it destroyed it. Namely, it
destroyed his papacy!
