Interiors in Honour of Remembrance

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Yesterday we held a minutes silence in order to remember those brave service men and women that have sacrificed their lives for us so we can enjoy our freedom.  This year is even more special as it's the 100th anniversary of the First World War which we entered on the 4 August 1914.  After the First World War, The Royal British Legion adopted the poppy as their symbol of Remembrance and hope.  This iconic symbol holds a place in our hearts.  Personally I have been moved by the major artistic installation entitled 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' at the Tower of London.  Over 800,000 ceramic poppies create a powerful commemoration for the First World War Centenary. Tomorrow we will again hold a minutes silence in honour of Armistice Day, when the First World War ended, the 11 minute on the 11 hour of the 11 day. It would be completely remiss to let this pass by without paying our respects, therefore we have found a selection of Interiors in Honour of Remembrance. Mugs Beautifully designed and extremely emotive is this collection of mugs.  This beautiful bone china mug is produced by the Imperial War Museum and features the First World War 2014 Poppy stamp.

  Art Art is expressive. It can arouse feelings of emotion through its brush stocks and use of light and shade.  These beautiful pieces of art do not need words to create a sense of Remembrance, as they say, 'a picture is worth a thousand words'.
