Description

Thousands of visitors are heading for the Tower of London to take in the design and structure of the memorial installation for the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. It has been created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, with setting by stage designer Tom Piper. Close to 900 thousand ceramic poppies will progressively fill the Tower's famous moat. Called the 'Bloodswept Lands and Seas of Red' at the Tower of London, many spoke to ynuk.tv about the display praising the art installation. The aim is to fill the dry moat with poppies by Armistice Day November 11 2014. The 1914-18 Great War left 17 million soldiers and civilians dead. visit http://ynuk.tv like http://www.facebook.com/YNUKtv follow http://www.twitter.com/YourNewsUktv
