Tower of London turns into sea of red poppies

LONDON (NBC/APTN) — The Tower of London was turned into a sea of red poppies to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I.

The art installation, called “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” features more than 888,000 ceramic poppies: one for every British and Commonwealth soldier who died during what’s called the Great War.

The poppies were laid throughout the summer by artist Paul Cummins and a team of volunteers.
