Goin’ Down In A Slab of Glory

Most will be familiar by now with the story of the rich Irish donors who contributed to keeping the Vatican spick and span for the day when Jesus comes again in glory to judge the living and the dead. But there is a weird detail in the background to this story. I came across the following, from the Vatican Museums Report Winter 2009.

Now I have no idea whether this is a computer-generated image intended to look like an engraved slab, or whether it’s a photographic image of a real engraved slab. One notes that jetsetter Johnny Ronan is just plain John to the man upstairs.
