A day at the British Museum

We had the good fortune recently to meet up with friends in London and visit the British Museum to see an exhibition by Grayson Perry it was called The tomb of the unknown craftsman and was, in his words “..a memorial to all the anonymous skilled individuals who’ve made all the things in the British Museum..”
They had on display many of his hand crafted exhibits juxtaposed against those from elsewhere in the collections of the Museum, one of the highlights was this rather curious motorcycle that included mounted on the back, a Pope-mobile type contraption for his pet teddy-bear….
