Il Duomo Nuovo di Brescia, Italia
Msgr. Monari, what kind of chair did you provide for our Holy Father?
Symbolism is very convenient for them, because it is "impossible" to identify the meaning of this or that symbol exactly. They can include other meanings, hidden meanings, or double meanings, not standard meanings, into this or that symbol, secretly. For this reason, they (not including our Holy Father, of course) can keep on being arrogant, fearless, in their hidden heart.
About the images (figures) on the arms and the back of this chair, they would insist, of course, that these are the symbols of Four Evangelists. Nevertheless, the designs of these images remind me of Egyptian or other paganism strongly.
