Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

To commemorate the centennial of Britain’s involvement in the First World War, ceramic artist Paul Cumminsand stage designer Tom Piper conceived of a staggering installation of ceramic poppies planted in the famous dry moat around the Tower of London. Titled Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red,” the final work will consist of 888,246 red ceramic flowers—each representing a British or Colonial military fatality—that flow through grounds around the tower.

Volunteers began placing the poppies several weeks ago and the process will continue through the summer until a final flower is symbolically planted on November 11th. You can read more about the project over on theHistoric Royal Palaces website, and see the volunteers’ progress by following the #TowerPoppies hashtag on Twitter.
