„Blood Swept Lands 6“

from the gallery of Chris Thaxter

“The blood-swept lands and seas of red, where angels fear to tread.” written by an unknown Derbyshire soldier who died in Flanders.
Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' sees the Tower of London's famous dry moat filled with over 800,000 ceramic poppies to create a powerful visual commemoration for the First World War Centenary.
The poppies, a symbol of Remembrance in the UK, will encircle the iconic landmark, creating not only a spectacular display visible from all around the Tower, but also an inspiring setting for performance and learning activities, as well as providing a location for personal reflection.
