Artists Configure Ceramic Poppies To Flow Like Blood from the Tower of London to Commemorate WWI

Artists placed 888,246  ceramic poppies ( I suppose to cover all the casualties of WWI from the United Kingdom in World War I). I found this on thisiscollosal.com, an art blog and Gizmodo. Click to enlarge.

Ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper handmade these with over 50 other artists and they are each being laid in by hand. Crawford Butler, the longest serving Yeoman Warden, also known as a beefeater guard, planted the first ceramic poppy. The last poppy will be placed on the last day of the installation: November 11, Armistice Day.
