British artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss accompanied by hundreds of volunteers, on September 21, 2013, travelled to the beaches of Normandy and stenciled 9,000 silhouettes representing fallen people into the sand. The project named, 'The Fallen' is a tribute to those who lost their lives during D-Day landing on June 6, 1944, in World War II. The original team consisted of 60 volunteers, but as word spread nearly 500 additional local residents arrived to help. The shapes were then left to the mercy of the tide which washed away the stencils after around four and a half hours.

Speaking of the idea behind the project Wardley said: “The Fallen is a sobering reminder of what happens when peace is not present. The idea is to create a visual representation of what is otherwise unimaginable, the thousands of human lives lost during the hours of the tide during the Second World War Normandy landings.”
