This poignant art installation called The Fallen was made to mark International Peace Day.  The D Day landings on the beaches of Normandy where so many lost their lives, have been recreated by artists and volunteers. 

 The Fallen 9000 Normandy9000 sand silhouettes were individually created to represent those that had fallen, the shapes were then left to the mercy of the tide which washed away the 'fallen' after around four and a half hours.  Simple, powerful and thought provoking.
