Weeping Window


Weeping Window is part of the Centenary Remembrance events of WW1 and Belfast Arts Festival at the Ulster Museum.  I had to visit today just to see this extraordinary waterfall of poppies cascading over the facade of the museum.  The designer of this amazing display was Tom Piper and artist Paul Cummins.


Over 25,000 ceramic poppies were individually placed to complete it.






A very moving display as we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

  2. This is totally amazing, I have never seen anything like it!!! I wonder how long it took to make it? Poppies are one of my favorite flowers. It does look like the building is crying.

  5. Absolutely breathtaking display! I didn't see it as 'crying' but as 'love being poured out'. What a wonderful tribute! It must be more breathtaking in person ; photos just wouldn't get the same effect. Thanks for sharing with us! God bless you, Christine.
