The wax figure of the pope was part of a publicity stunt for Madame Tassaud, which added it to its collection in advance of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States. The company drove it around Midtown, hours before the pope’s expected arrival.

A representative for Madame Tussauds New York said in a statement: “The NYPD agreed that this was all in good fun as we celebrated Pope Francis’ first trip to New York. The figure is a true testament to the artistry of Madame Tussauds and generated a lot of smiles and photo opportunities for several bystanders along the way.”
