Weeping Window, Caernarfon Castle, Gwynedd, North-west Wales.
Caernarfon Castle is the first location in Wales to host Poppies:
Weeping Window, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper.
Weeping Window is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic
poppies, and was originally seen pouring from a high window to the
ground below at the Tower of London as part of the installation Blood
Swept Lands and Seas of Red.
Caernarfon Castle, part of the Castles and Town Walls of King Edward in
Gwynedd World Heritage Site, was built in the Middle Ages for King
Edward 1 of England.
The Castle will host a number of First
World War commemoration events over the remaining three years of the
Centenary, contributing to the Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918
national centenary programme of remembrance. It is home to the Royal
Welch Fusiliers Museum, housed in two of its towers, and was as a result
considered an appropriate and relevant site to host the exhibition and
supporting programme of activities, which will be managed and developed
in conjunction with the Royal Welch Fusiliers and (the Welsh Centre for
International Affairs’) “Wales for Peace” programme.
