This summer there’s been a lot going on, we’ve already had the European Football Championships, with Wales and Iceland showing what a small nation is capable of, and Wimbledon saw Andy Murray win the Championship for the second time. It’s a great time for Britain, and I say that despite the results of the EU Referendum. Whichever way you voted, the sporting championships have at least taken us away from the pandemonium and the fallout that’s ensued following the results.
The UK voted to leave the EU on the 23 rd June, now that the dust has settled, what does it mean now? We have seen that Brexit has had an incredible impact on currency markets, bringing an exceptional level of volatility, and a rapid depreciation for the Great British Pound (GBP). The fallout of Brexit has been described as a once in lifetime event, not only rattling markets, but reshaping them in the short-term.
Sculpture – which is your favourite period?
As a means of human expression, sculpture goes back a long way. We can trace it as far back as the Egyptians and Mesopotamians, the ancient Americas, Asians, and those beautiful freestanding sculptures of the Greeks from the Hellenistic and classic eras.
Here in Europe we had the Romanesque and Gothic periods, which would have great influence on church buildings. We’re talking Moissac, Santiago de Compostela, Hildesheim and Vezelay to name but a few.
The Rio Olympics & Sports Memorabilia
It'll be the Olympics next month; it seems only yesterday that we were celebrating the London Olympics in 2012. But yes, the heady days of the London Olympics were four years ago and now we stand on the cusp of another Olympics, this time in Rio. I’m sure we’re all excited to see our sportsmen and women out there competing for GB and we wish them all the best of luck.
