This temporary work of art has been slowly filling the moat surrounding the Tower of London with almost 900 000 hand crafted ceramic poppies, each representing the life of a Commonwealth soldier who died in WW1. It's beautifully, and powerfully, called: Blood-swept lands and seas of red. When looking at the images, keep in mind that each poppy was a Commonwealth life lost. Not to mention the German, French, Russian, Turkish deaths and the millions upon millions who were injured, maimed or shell-shocked. From the BBC website: General the Lord Dannatt, Constable of the Tower of London, said an estimated five million people had been to see the poppies. The former head of the British Army said: "The great thing about it is that people are engaged with this. "I think they have taken ownership of it and the reason why I think they have done that is that specific number, 888,246 - not a random number - that is the number of British and Colonial soldiers who lost their lives in the First World War. "Every poppy represents a life lost and a family shattered." It's been a long, long time since I've been this impressed / impacted by a work of art. Any Brits lucky enough to catch a glimpse in the flesh?
