Thomas More - thinker with a really shiny statue

Today, I've got this picture of Thomas More for you. Thomas More, for those who don't know, came up with the idea of 'Utopia' - an ideal state where men and women are educated alike, there's complete religious tolerance and communal ownership of land. Wishful thinking on his part because he was executed by King Henry VIII, (yup, the one with all those wives) for not agreeing that he, Henry VIII, was the supreme head of the Church of England.

Anyway, let's not think about his grisly end and contemplate, instead, the shiny golden glory of his statue and the possibilities of Utopia.
