Artist's description:

This work commemorates a very particular point in European history. The meeting at the Field of the Cloth of Gold between King Henry V!!! of England and King Francis I of France represents a rare moment of friendship between the two nations which had been enemies prior to the meeting for centuries and would be thereafter.

Shortly after this meeting Henry VIII was excommunicated from the Church of Rome and Francis played a significant part in pursuading the Pope to act as he did.

Henry founded the Church of England which meant now that England was the first country in Europe to break from the monolith of the Roman Catholic Church which had held sway throughout Europe. This separation of England marks the point that England ceases to be a European country and from hereon pursues its own path in the world.
