Seas of Red

CODE: ON1162
The major art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London marked one hundred years since Britain's involvement in the First World War. Created by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies progressively filled the Tower's famous moat between 17 July and 11 November 2014. Each poppy represented a British military fatality during the war. The installation created not only a spectacular display visible from all around the Tower but also a location for personal reflection. The scale of the installation was intended to reflect the magnitude of such an important centenary and create a powerful visual commemoration. Matt Freestone's beautiful photograph perfectly captures the solemnity and magnificence of this momentous occasion.
