THE FALLEN 9000 AT NORMANDY BEACH
D-Day is one of the most notorious days when discussing World War II. At the beaches of Normandy thousands of soldiers died on June 6th, 1944. This day will forever be remembered as a day to honor those who fought and died. As a reminder to the public of what happened at at Arromanches, artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss, along with 550+ volunteers “took to the beaches of Normandy with rakes and stencils in hand to etch 9,000 silhouettes representing fallen people into the sand.” The piece was very impactful although it only lasted a few hours before being washed away by the ocean's tides.
