Hampton Court Palace is paying its own tribute to wartime history with the return of a stunning display of life-sized soldier silhouettes in the beautiful grounds.
The special installation, which can be seen until November 26th, features 100 soldier silhouettes, displayed alongside 79 screen printed poppy wreaths, creating both a poignant and impressive display for visitors.
To reflect Hampton Court Palace’s own wartime story, the unique installation in the East Front Gardens, known as Standing with Giants, will be joined by an additional 25 specially made silhouettes representing the Indian soldiers who took up residence on the Hampton Court Estate for the First World War Victory Parade in London.
The display features 100 Tommy soldiers and 25 Indian soldiers.
A spokesperson said: “Standing with Giants creates large-scale outdoor remembrance art installations, made from recycled materials, handmade by volunteers.
“These installations provide a meaningful space for people to visit and reflect, grieve, and discuss. Bringing people together to remember those who fought for freedom, past and present.
