11.11.2014; London: UK: ARMISTICE DAY DAWN AT THE TOWER OF LONDON'S
'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' poppy installation.
The Tower of London, has been marking the centenary of the First World War with an art installation, Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins.
Ceramic poppies have progressively filled the Tower’s moat. Each poppy represents a British military fatality during the war. The poppies now encircle the iconic landmark, creating a spectacular display visible from all around the Tower and a location for personal reflection. The scale of the installation is intended to reflect the magnitude of such an important centenary, creating a powerful visual commemoration. The last poppy will be placed today.
