LEST WE FORGET
This Stunning Memorial to Britain’s WWI Soldiers Makes Its Final Appearance.
The wave of brilliant red flowers marks the end of a centennial of commemorations of the Great War
Since 2015, Paul Cummins and Tom Piper’s traveling poppy sculptures “Wave” and “Weeping Window” have traveled around the UK, honoring those lost in WWI. Comprised of several thousand ceramic poppies, the two separate structures were initially conceived as a part of the “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” installation at the Tower of London in 2014. Now, as the “Wave” prepares to make its final stop, take a look back at the landscapes that have been transformed by these two works of art.
