Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red

Last night my family and I went to see “The poppies at the Tower of London” exhibition by ceramic artist Paul Cummins called, Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red.

Each poppy represents the life of a serviceman or woman who died during the First World War. There are 888,246 in total which means 888,246 died in battle. Needless to say, I found the visual experience stunning, incredible and overwhelming.

The following photographs are a pictorial record of the exhibition and have been reproduced from the BBC News website with the sub-headline, “In Pictures, The Poignant poppies that have resonated with the UK”.
