A cultured moment

One of the joys of the Assembly Plenary meetings is that occasionally we get a glimpse of more cultured times. It is no coincidence that these often originate from the erudite Conservative AM for South Wales Central. Yesterday it was on public art:

David Melding: Do you not agree that one of the more regrettable consequences of the reformation is that we lost great visual culture and the glories of public art in so many cathedrals, monasteries and other places of worship and public areas? Today, far too many public places look bleak and drab. They are calling out for art and to be regarded as blank canvasses, and for the modern equivalent of icons to saints, which would be statues to public figures. We want to revel in the glory of Welsh culture.
