9,000 SAND DRAWINGS COMMEMORATE D-DAY SOLDIERS



Written by Robert Foster

Artists Andy Moss and Jamie Wardley of Sand In Your Eye worked with a team of volunteers to create a temporary piece of art in the sand of the D-Day landing beaches in Normandy. Called "The Fallen", the piece is made up of 9,000 sand drawings to commemorate the civilians, allied forces, and Germans who died during WWII. The piece was created for International Peace Day (21 September) and covered the entire shoreline.
