ANIMAL has commissioned artist Michael Ian Weinfeld to create this limited edition "POPE" print of Benedict XVI.

The occasion? To commemorate Benedict's first visit to New York City as Pontiff.

The print parodies the famous "HOPE" print for presidential hopeful Obama.

666 signed and numbered prints of this 16.25 x 24 inches Giclée on archival paper will be made. So hurry up! It sells for $99.
