Religious views on Remembrance Sunday

This is a religious view taken from a friend’s bathroom.

A picture can speak a thousand words, but I will add this; Remembrance Sunday reminds me how the Church for centuries has stood behind the ruling classes, the government, the industrialists eager to send young boys out to die in muddy fields.

And then, when the slaughter has been done, the maps re-drawn, the refugee camps built and the money counted, we are sold pretty little poppies to commemorate the sad loss of  life.

But war isn’t a necessary evil. What are all these old silver backs talking about?

About Anna

I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us. I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.
