Flaming pope iconography!

Haven't had any new Culinary Iconography in the news lately, but here's something that was on Yahoo religion page today:

Image in fire said to resemble late pope

From Yahoo News:

A composite image shows, at right a bonfire which locals believe resembles the silhouette of late Pope John Paul II making a blessing, in a picture taken by amateur photographer Grzegorz Lukasik, atop Matyska mountain in southern Poland, on April 2, 2007, during a vigil marking the second anniversary of the Polish pope's death. Data on Lukasik's digital camera says the picture was taken at 21.37:30, exactly the hour when the pope died. Picture at left shows Pope John Paul II waving to faithfuls as he leaves the Vatican, in this Aug. 8, 2001 file photo. (AP Photo/Grzegorz Lukasik/Plinio Lepri)

Yeah, like Pope John Paul II was the only person in human history who ever waved at anybody.

OR it could be the image of Eva Peron wearing a shoulder fur and gown.

Hmmm..could be a head shot of someone wearing their ball cap far back on their head.
