The animal sculptures made from wire mesh are a reminder of the menagerie which in the past had been kept in the moat area.
Poppies in the Moat
From 5 August 2014 to 11 November 2014, a major artistic installation entitled 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' sees the Tower of London's famous dry moat filled with over 800,000 ceramic poppies to create a powerful visual commemoration for the First World War Centenary.
