Sea of Poppies

A visit to Tower of London just got more interesting with the pop-up exhibition from artist Paul Cummins.

Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red is the name of the installation created exclusively for the centennial of IWW.

It is a total 888.246 ceramic poppies (symbol of remembrance) planted around the castle.

Beautiful and overwhelming.
