A sculpture made up of thousands of ceramic red poppies to mark the centenary of World War One is set to be unveiled in Cardiff.

The Weeping Window first went on display at the Tower of London in 2014 and has since been on a tour of the country.

It has been erected outside the Senedd in Cardiff Bay.

The assembly building is also hosting an exhibition telling the story of Welsh women affected by war.

Visitors will be able to view the poppies sculpture from all sides, including through the floor-to-ceiling windows inside the Senedd.

It will be officially opened on Tuesday.

The sculpture first went on show in Wales at Caernarfon Castle in October last year.
