Rome, November 19 - A new version of a
controversial statue of late pope John Paul II at Rome's Termini
Station was unveiled Monday.
The statue was given a new look after experts and the
public called for it to be taken down as an eyesore and it was
used by street people as a refuge.
As part of the improvements the face was melted down and
"remodelled completely" to make it look more like the iconic
Polish pontiff, Rome officials said.
The cloak, which had been so wide and rigid it was dubbed a
"sentry box", has been moved closer into the body so that it
"drapes more naturally", they said.
The stature has also been raised, better illuminated,
surrounded by a larger flower garden than before and placed
under round-the-clock CCTV surveillance, Rome city council said.
