Picture of the Day: Never Forgotten

Written by

 

At the Tower of London 888,246 ceramic poppies were installed, each representing a British life lost in the First World War. The progressive art installation, entitled Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, was created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper.

Since August 5th, thousands of volunteers have helped plant the 888,246 poppies with the final poppy planted earlier today to commemorate Remembrance Day.

At the end of the installation each ceramic poppy planted will be available to purchase with all net proceeds shared equally amongst six service charities. To learn more about the moving exhibit, visit the Historic Royal Palaces – Tower of London.
