The monumental sculpture, Les Braves, on the beach at Omaha Beach in Normandy (France). It was executed by Anilore Banon and consists of three elements:

The Wings of Hope

So that the spirit which carried these men on 6th June 1944, continues to inspire us, reminding us that together it is always possible to change the future.

Rise of Freedom

So that the example of those who rose up against barbarity, helps us remain standing strong against all forms on inhumanity.

The Wings of Fraternity

So that the surge of brotherhood always reminds of our responsibility towards others as well as ourselves.

On 6th June 1944, these men were more than soldiers, they were our brothers.

Anilore Banon.
