Remembrance Poppies At The Tower of London - Photo Gallery

A major art installation, Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red is currently on show at the Tower of London, marking 100 years since the first full day of Britain’s involvement in the First World War. Created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, with setting by stage designer Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies will progressively fill the Tower’s famous moat over the summer. Each poppy represents a British military fatality during the war. The poppies will encircle the iconic landmark, creating not only a spectacular display visible from all around the Tower but also a location for personal reflection. The installation will remain in place until November 11, 2014. View photos of the poppies…
