Les Braves Memorial of Omaha Beach - Fabulous Stainless Steel Monument

09 Jun 2014

Anilore Banon created ‘Les Braves’, a fabulous nine metre tall Stainless Steel monument on the centre of Omaha Beach in Normandy. It was created to commemorate the Americans who liberated France in a battle that started with D-day on 6 June 1944. It was placed on the beach, near to where the original monument was placed many years ago. It was commissioned by the French government to celebrate the 60th anniversary in 2004.
