|Pope's Inaugural Mass in the Sistine Chapel|
Well not even the Pope's first Mass in the Sistine Chapel is worthy of the Tapestries. The lower walls remain bare save for their faux drapery.
The Tapestries absence could be due to the new Pope's shunning of all the ostentation associated with the office of Pope - much of the pomp deliberately being stripped away.
The chapel nevertheless looks magnificent with the Cardinals in Gold for the Mass in contrast to Red for the Conclave - a wonderful site!
