"Bloody" portraits in the memory of World War II


Film director Danny Boyle said he hoped people would think of the "great wave of blood" through 32 giant sand portraits on the British banks marking the centenary of signing the ceasefire that ended World War I today.
Artists are ready to start digging the portraits as the tides retreat in the morning before the works of "Sea Pages" are wiped out by the next wave during the day. Boyle said the concept was inspired by 1922's May-Boy Jack poem by Rodyard Kipling, referring to a mother who watched the sea every day in the hope that her son would return one day out of the battle .
