Naples, March 14 - A statuette of new Pope Francis
has already been placed in one of the Christmas crib shops
Naples is famous for.
The statuette crib-maker Jenny Di Virgilio made after
Francis's election Wednesday night spurred demands for replicas
from Neapolitans and tourists Thursday.
It depicts the smiling Argentinian pontiff with his arms
wide open, welcoming people.
"I made it overnight, he's wearing the same clothes as last
night, it's a single piece painted in oils," Di Virgilio told
journalists.
She said she hoped to be able to give a copy to Francis as
she did with his predecessor Benedict XVI, who abdicated last
month to usher in the election of the first non-European pope in
1,300 years.
