On September 21, 2013 (International Day of Peace) two U.K. sand artists (Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss) with hundreds of volunteers scrapped outlines into the sand. The outlines were representative of soldiers who died on the Normandy beach at Arromanches.
“‘The Fallen’ is a sobering reminder of what happens when peace is not present,” Wardley said in the release.
