Poppies At Tower Of London.

1Hundreds of thousands of ceramic poppies are pouring out of the Tower of London and flowing around its walls like a waterfall of crimson blood. This dramatic picture is part of an ongoing installation called “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red,” created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper to commemorate Britain’s involvement in the First World War one hundred years ago.
The ceramic poppies are still being placed by volunteers, with the 888,246th scheduled to be planted on 11th November, 2014. The evolving installation will be unveiled on 5th August, 2014 – one hundred years since the first full day of Britain’s involvement in the First World War.
All of the poppies, each of which symbolize a single lost British and colonial soldier, will be available to buy for £25 from the opening day on. 10% of their price will be equally shared among six service charities.
