Tower of London: 888,246 Poppies

Up until 11th November the Tower of London will be surrounded by 888,246  ceramic poppies. The installation is a collaboration between ceramic artist Paul Cummins and theatre stage designer Tom Pipe to commemorate the First World War Centenary.

The work is titled ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’

In my opinion, an excellent use of art together with historic architecture.

When visited: September 2014
