The Tower of London has been marking the centenary of the First World War with the art installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.’
It was created by the artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper.
It shows 888,246 ceramic poppies that have filled the Tower’s moat, each representing British and Colonial military fatality during the war.
The scale of the installation is intended to reflect the magnitude of such an important centenary, creating a powerful visual commemoration.
The first poppy was planted on the 17th July and was officially launched on the 5th of August.
The final poppy will be placed today, Armistice Day, 11 November 2014.
The poppies that make up the installation have been sold to raise millions of pounds for six service charities in the UK.
Maleena Pone went to see more.
