Poppies: Weeping Window is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic poppies, and was originally seen pouring from a high window to the ground below at the Tower of London as part of the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.
At The Black Watch Museum, located in the city of Perth, the breathtaking sculpture flowed from a second floor turret window across the Castle grounds.
During the First World War 50,000 men saw service with The Black Watch, Scotland’s premier Highland Regiment, in campaigns across the Western Front, Mesopotamia and Salonika.
The Black Watch has a long and distinguished history which can be traced back to 1739 and beyond, and The Black Watch Castle and Museum became its Regimental Headquarters in 1962.
