Centenary poppy sculptures
As The Royal British Legion’s chosen partner in WW1 Centenary art installations, award-winning artist Mark Humphrey has created moving tributes to the one million Servicemen and women from the UK and Commonwealth who died as a result of the First World War.
About the sculptures
His newly-designed Poppy Sculptures - erected in UK shopping malls including MK in Milton Keynes and Bluewater in Kent - has room for passers-by to insert more than 3,000 poppies that can be dedicated to loved ones who have died as a result of conflict.
"I wanted to create a low cost, easy-to-install commemoration sculpture that brings home to the public the great sacrifices that were made 100 years ago. “They will inspire the community to mark the centenary of the First World War and create a space for the public to reflect and remember those soldiers who lost their lives, not just in the past but as a result of more recent conflict."Mark Humphrey
"The sculptures are a moving tribute to the Service men and women who gave their lives in the First World War. Mark’s sculptures are a terrific concept which we hope people will embrace."Charles Byrne, Director of Fundraising, The Royal British Legion
