Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red print

888,246 ceramic poppies progressively filled the Tower's famous moat between July and November 2014 to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. Each poppy intended to represent one British or Colonial serviceman killed in the War, each poppy was hand-made individually. It was estimated that five million people saw the memorial.

The work's title, and Cummins' inspiration for the work, came from a poem by an unknown World War I soldier from Derbyshire, who joined up in the early days of the war and died in Flanders. The poem begins: "The blood swept lands and seas of red".

Coloured print of the installation at the Tower of London - 40cm (15.7") x 30cm (11.8").
