888,246 Ceramic Poppies Fill The Moat At The Tower Of London – Spectacular Aerial View Of The First World War Memorial [Video]

With this year marking the centenary of the start of the First World War, many events have taken place to remind us all of the sacrifices made by so many.

One of the biggest was at the Tower of London, where a commemorative art installation has been drawing thousands of visitors.

Each ceramic poppy in the artwork – Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red – represents a British or colonial death during World War One.

Created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, with setting by stage designer Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies fill the Tower’s famous moat – one poppy for every life lost.
