I am delighted to announce that I have been working with the Richard III society with a view to creating a tomb for the former King. You will remember that his remains were recently recovered from the Social Services car park in Leicester. It is almost certain that he will be interred in Leicester Cathedral, a stones throw away from where the archaeological dig took place. The tomb has been designed by historian David Johnson and artist Wendy Johnson who have been involved with the Richard III society for 40 years. Their knowledge of the life of Richard III is incredible, there were so many directions the design could have taken and I believe that they have balanced these very well. The tomb is contemporary in design, clean cut and contains the motifs that were important and relevant to Richard while the stone is light in colour, Richard having been in darkness for so long. There is some way to go before the tomb is given the go ahead, nevertheless, I am honoured to be linked with such a prestigious project. The tomb designs as well as the philosophy and research behind them can be found on the Richard III website at www.richardiii.net
