The sculpture by Anilore Banon – the Braves – in homage to the soldiers of D-Day on Omaha Beach in Normandy.

On the centre of Omaha Beach is the monument, to the Americans who liberated France. It was placed on the beach in 2004, near the original monument placed here many years ago.
The sculpture 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

    A fitting tribute to the slaughter – aggressive but at the same time beautiful. A spectacular bw making premium use of available light.

  • It is a splendid work of art…And to think they wanted to remove it: it is “illegal”: as new construction of any kind is not allowed on the beaches. After years of debate, it was finally allowed to stay. Thank you for your comment and your visit.
