Boing Boing reader Jesse Hattabaugh spotted this scene over the pre-inauguration weekend, in San Francisco's Mission district. View larger. Previous Obamaphemera observations on BB this week: Run*DC, Obamarley, Yes we (Can).

Update: BB commenter signalnine says,

Obama's not standing in for Jesus on that candle, he's standing in for St. Martin de Porres, a 17th century mulatto Dominican brother noted for his devotion to the poor in Peru. In fact, he's the patron saint of the poor.
