Marking 100 years since the Brits' involvement in the first World War, Cummins was commissioned to create a moving, yet beautiful installation in tribute. The delicate poppies adorn the entire castle and its grounds. Cummins has gather the individually sculpted faux flowers in flowing groups. Some pour out of the Tower windows, cascading to the ground, while others seem to splash over from the fields into the pedestrian walkways, bringing a trail of bright crimson to visitors' feet. Groups of the deep red flowers gather as if in pools, filling up the towers moat to create an eerie look of red water, or spilled blood.
