A pair of British artists have created this  stunning installation of 9,000 silhouettes on a  D-Day Landings beach to mark international Peace Day.

The project, named, ‚The Fallen‘ is a tribute  to the civilians, German forces and Allies who lost their lives during the  Operation Neptune landing on June 6, 1944.

The design was the brainchild of Jamie  Wardley, 33, and Andy Moss, 50.

Together with a team of volunteers the pair  travelled to Arromanches beach, Normandy, to create the silhouettes,  which were individually drawn into the sand.
