The Tower of London is already one of London’s most incredible landmarks, and now an art installation has been improved to make it look even better.
When Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red by Paul Cummins is completed it will see 888,246 ceramic poppies ‘planted’ in the surrounding dry moat. Marking the commencement of the First World War 100 years ago, the poppies have been poured from the Tower’s window, each one representing a lost British life during the conflict.
The result of Cummins’ work is a spectacular display that combines beauty and tragedy in a consuming fashion. If you’re in the area why not go and pay your respects and take a look for yourself?
