This is the first of Hollywood artist Tomasz Rut's series of "Nolite Timere" paintings honoring Pope John Paul II and President Lech Walesa. Rut recently delivered this and one other original oil painting to the Vatican. The paintings were blessed by Pope Benedict XVI and will join the works of Michelangelo and Rafael in the Vatican Collection.
