Watch: The Fallen

On September 21st 2013, International peace day, two British artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss created a sand drawing on the D-Day landing beach of Arromanches in Normandy. The artists, along with hundreds of volunteers all armed with rakes and stencils drew 9000 people in the sand to demonstrate the 9000 lives lost in the Normandy Beach landings on June 6th 1944.

Powerful stuff.

A documentary following this sculpture is in production and the website for the project can be found here.
