papal tiara of Pope Pius IX
I like the previous one better.
If Only He'd Wear It
If memory serves, this is the same tiara that was used to crown Pius XII. That considerably boosts its already high coolness rating.
Pius XII was crowned with a different tiara. Same one Blessed John was crowned with. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_mia71BYVLKo/SgObVRTXgzI/AAAAAAAAABU/mCRZVukPzmI/S1600-R/piusxii.jpg
