Oct 17 (Reuters) - Thousands of handmade ceramic poppies pour from a tower top onto the grass below at Caernarfon Castle, the first place in Wales to host the display that was shown in London two years ago to mark the centenary of the beginning of World War One.

"Poppies: Weeping Window," by Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, has toured Britain - including Lincoln Castle and Perth, Scotland - after its debut as part of the "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red" installation at the Tower of London.

At Caernarfon, the display runs until Nov. 20.
