What will survive of us is love



There is a tomb in Chichester Cathedral called the Arundel Tomb. It shows a powerful and influential couple from 700 years ago, but their faces have faded with time and their achievements forgotten. Then one notices that the Knight has removed his glove and is tenderly holding his wife's hand. All that now represents this couple is their love. Perhaps love is all that connects us and is all that remains after us? This was the subject of a Philip Larkin poem and part of the inspiration of this drawing.
