Make art, not war: 9000 bodies stenciled on beach for Peace Day

Two UK artists, Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss, recently etched out 9,000 silhouettes on Normandy’s Arromanches beach to mark international Peace Day and pay tribute to both civilians and military officers who lost their lives during the Operation Neptune landing on June 6, 1944. The effect is both sobering and chilling. Stunning? Yes, stunning.
