Tower of London, Raven. Eight ravens are kept at the Tower of London. Their wings are clipped so they can't fly away.  Legend has it that failing to have Ravens reside at the Tower will cause it to crumble and a terrible disaster shall befall England.

This summer, the Tower Of London will be surrounded by a sea of crimson. This installation, conceived by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, will commemorate each and every British or Colonial fatality from World War 1 by planting 888, 246 red ceramic poppies in a flowing sea around the tower. My mum purchased a poppy for a relative lost in this battle. Absolutely beautiful.
