Paul Cummins | Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red
The Tower Of London has marked the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War with a striking art installation. Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red by Paul Cummins features thousands of ceramic poppies pouring out of the tower flowing into the moat and will officially be unveiled on August 5. The final poppy will be planted on November 11. There will be a total of 888,246 poppies planted, with each flower representing a British military fatality from WWI.
"You’ve been so much fun, that the band and I have actually started to call you
"FUN-don." Get it? We love you a lot."
