The breath-taking sculptures were initially conceived as the key dramatic sculptural elements in the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London in the autumn of 2014, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper.

The Poppies Tour has been visited by over 3 million people to date.
