Poppies at the Tower of London

In the months leading up to remembrance day on the 11th November 2014 an installation of ceramic poppies evolved in the moat surrounding the Tower of London. The installation was called Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, and the 88,246 ceramic poppies created by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper were to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

Each poppy represented a British military fatality during the way. They were progressively added between the 17th July and the 11th November 2014.
