my love of big, bold public art displays.
Since then, there have been many notable examples of such works.
The most dramatic example was at the Tower of London last year. An art installation called “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” paid homage to British soldiers killed during World War I.
Marking the 100th anniversary of the Great War, the installation featured a sea of ceramic red poppies surrounding the Tower of London. In all, there were 888,246 poppies – each one representing the memory of a soldier killed between 1914 and 1918.
