A carnival enthusiast works on a papier mache figure for a carnival float depicting Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst of Limburg, in preparations for the upcoming Rose Monday carnival parade in Mainz February 25, 2014. Tebartz-van Elst reaped stiff criticism from German Catholics and the title “luxury bishop” in the media after it was revealed he spent at least 30 million euros ($40.69 million) on a new residence complex.
