Poppy waterfall travels from Tower of London to Orkney
The iconic Weeping Window sculpture has been installed at St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall.
A waterfall of ceramic poppies first seen at the Tower of London is now in Orkney as part of First World War commemorations.
The iconic Weeping Window sculpture, made up of more than 4000 poppies, has been installed at St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall.
Orkney will next month be the focus of events marking 100 years since the Battle of Jutland, regarded as one of the war's most significant naval engagements.
More than 6000 British personnel and 2500 Germans died in the battle in the North Sea in 1916.
The sculpture was created by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, who will visit the work when it opens to the public later on Friday.
It was originally installed at the Tower of London in 2014, where 888,246 poppies were displayed - one to honour every death in the British and colonial forces between 1914 and 1918.
More than five million visitors saw the poppies when they were at the London landmark.
The Orkney visit is part of a UK-wide tour which will take the sculpture to Lincoln Castle, Caernarfon Castle in North Wales and the Black Watch Museum in Perth.
The Battle of Jutland took place near the coast of Denmark's Jutland Peninsula and involved about 250 ships.
Most of the British vessels which took part in the engagement were stationed at Scapa Flow in Orkney.
Fought over 36 hours from May 31 to June 1 1916, the British lost 6094 seamen while 2551 Germans died during the battle.
Members of the public can view the artwork, which has previously been to Liverpool, until June 12.
