"Bloody" portraits in the memory of World War II

Film director Danny Boyle said he hoped people would think of the "great tide of blood" through 32 giant sand portraits on the British shores marking the centenary of the signing of the truce that ended World War I today.
Artists are set to begin digging up the fleeting portraits as the tides recede in the morning, before the "Pages of the Sea" works are erased by the next tide later in the day. Boyle said the concept was inspired by Rodyard Kipling's 1925 poem, "May-Boy Jack," referring to a mother watching the tide every day in the hope that her son would return one day from the battle.
