They say Evo is very enthusiastic and admires Francisco because he shows communist tendencies and issued such as nice encyclical attacking capitalism. Evo is a committed Marxist, but he has tempered his radical tendencies and managed to keep Bolivia from falling in the disastrous conditions we see in Venezuela and Cuba....for now.
I believe the Christian Catholics call Evo's actions a sacrilege. The object itself is heretical, and a gross insult to the Pope and the religious institution he represents.
I believe this is the equivalent of giving a menorah dipped in pork fat to a senior Rabbi, or sending a naked female statue to an Ayatollah?
