The Fallen 9000 (2013)

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.

About jasterling

One part of my life is in the science of anthropology and archaeology where I did comparative work. My other life that I am now pursuing is writing along the lines of fantasy/sci fi fictional writing as my one way to stay sane in this other insane world. Please enjoy the selections you will find in my blog.
