9,000 sand drawings commemorate the fallen on d-day

Info 2
British artists Andy Moss and Jamie Wardley of sand in your eye, along with a team volunteers, arranged and stenciled 9,000 drawings on the sand of the d-day landing beaches in Normandy, representing the civilians, germans and allied forces that died during WWII. "The fallen", which commemorates International Day of Peace on september 21, is a massive art installation of thousands of silhouettes covering the shoreline. Echoing the ephemeral nature of the lives lost, the artworks are totally erased by the incoming tide, a sobering reminder of what happens when peace is not present.
