Weeping Window by St George’s Hall

December 26, 2015

The Weeping Window is a travelling sculpture by artist, Paul Cummins and designer, Tom Piper first displayed outside the Tower of London in 2014 and has now moved to St George’s Hall in Liverpool.

The sculpture originally saw several thousand handmade ceramic poppies cascade from a high window in the Tower of London, but here in Liverpool you see them fall from the ceiling.The aim was to see a nationwide dialogue in remembrance of the first world war and that is why the sculpture will be travelling from place to place in the next few years until 2018. The Weeping Window can be seen in Liverpool from December 2015 to January 2016. By night you can clearly see the vibrant colours of the poppies, contrasting with the dark sky.By the original sculpture, volunteers could choose to place a poppy remembering those who were lost in the war. The sea of poppies grew until the final poppy was placed on the 14th November 2014.
