Photogallery: guarda la sorprendente installazione di papaveri che a Londra ricorda il centenario della Prima Guerra Mondiale

<p>Una distesa di 888.246 papaveri di ceramica è spuntata intorno alla Torre di Londra per ricordare i caduti britannici della Prima Guerra Mondiale. </p> <p>Il primo è stato piantato ad agosto e l’ultimo lo sarà l’11 novembre: ricorrenza della fine del conflitto e culmine delle commemorazioni, in seguito alla quale l’installazione verrà smantellata. </p> <p>Autore dell’opera è l’artista della ceramica Paul Cummins, che proprio nei lavori per la sua realizzazione ha subito un grave infortunio alla mano, costatogli l’amputazione del medio e l’uso dell’indice.</p> <div id="slides" dir="ltr"><ul class="slides_container"><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2>Poppy garden, Tower of London</h2><p>© Richard Lea-Hair and Historic Royal Palaces</p></div><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/286976/560x380_A04202.jpg"></li><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2>Poppy garden, Tower of London</h2><p>© Richard Lea-Hair and Historic Royal Palaces</p></div><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/286976/560x380_A04215.jpg"></li><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2>Poppy garden, Tower of London</h2><p>© Richard Lea-Hair and Historic Royal Palaces</p></div><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/286976/560x380_A04217.jpg"></li><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2>Poppy garden, Tower of London</h2><p>© Richard Lea-Hair and Historic Royal Palaces</p></div><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/286976/560x380_A04223.jpg"></li><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2>Poppy garden, Tower of London</h2><p>© Richard Lea-Hair and Historic Royal Palaces</p></div><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/286976/560x380_A04226.jpg"></li><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2>Poppy garden, Tower of London</h2><p>© Richard Lea-Hair and Historic Royal Palaces</p></div><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/286976/560x380_A04230.jpg"></li><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2>Poppy garden, Tower of London</h2><p>© Richard Lea-Hair and Historic Royal Palaces</p></div><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/286976/560x380_A04231.jpg"></li><li class="slide"><div class="caption"><h2>Poppy garden, Tower of London</h2><p>© Richard Lea-Hair and Historic Royal Palaces</p></div><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/286976/560x380_A04233.jpg"></li></ul><a href="#" class="prev"></a><a href="#" class="next"></a></div> <p></br></p> <p><strong><span class="caps">POPPY</span> <span class="caps">GARDEN</span> ON <span class="caps">SOCIAL</span> <span class="caps">MEDIA</span></strong></p> <p><div align="center"></p> <p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Moon over <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TowerPoppies?src=hash">#TowerPoppies</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/HRP_palaces"><code>HRP_palaces</a> &#10;&#10;<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/photography?src=hash">#photography</a> Nick Harvey/Rex <a href="http://t.co/hMyXTaoB1m">pic.twitter.com/hMyXTaoB1m</a></p>&mdash;
