L'opera dell'artista Anilore Banon si erge sulla sabbia di Omaha Beach: ricorda il coraggio delle ondate statunitensi che sbarcarono contro l'acciaio e il cemento armato dell'Atlantikwall (Vallo Atlantico).

Inchiodati per ore sulla battigia dal fuoco nemico, i soldati vennero esortati dal colonnello George A. Taylor: «Qui ci sono due tipi di individui, i morti e quelli che moriranno. Allora andiamocene via da qui!».

La presa di cinque chilometri di spiaggia costò la morte di 3.000 uomini e di altrettanti feriti e dispersi tra le onde del mare.

To remember the soldiers who lost their lives on this beach during the d-day landings Anilore Banon was commissioned to create a sculpture. This sculpture "Les Braves" is split into three elements, "The Wings of Hope", "Rise of Freedom" and "The Wings of Fraternity".

Les Braves - French sculptor Anilore Banon's tribute to soldiers involved in the June 6, 1944 D-Day landings at Normandy beaches. A plaque near Omaha Beach describes Banon's philosophy in the three elements of her sculpture:

 

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

 

Rise Freedom! - So that the example of those who rose against barbarity helps us remain standing strong against all forms of inhumanity.

 

The Wings of Fraternity - So that this surge of brotherhood always reminds us of our responsibility towards others, as well as ourselves.

The sculpture by Anilore Banon, "The Braves". He created this to honour the courage of these men: sons, husbands and fathers, who endangered and often sacrificed their lives in the hope of freeing the French people.

Anilore BANON, sculpteur, a réalisé un ensemble de 3 sculptures monumentales intitulées "LES BRAVES" avec "Debout la liberté" encadrée par "Les ailes de l'espoir" et par "Les ailes de la fraternité" mises en place sur le sable d'Omaha à St Laurent/Mer pour le 6 juin 2004.

  

Le titre de l'oeuvre, "Les braves", évoque le débarquement au travers du courage de ces hommes venus nous libérer en nous apportant liberté et espoir mais aussi des valeurs fortes comme la tolérance, la démocratie, l'indépendance, la fraternité entre les hommes et les peuples. Cette liberté retrouvée se manifeste par la symbolique de cette oeuvre, implantée dans le sable d'Omaha, là où le 6 juin 1944 près de 35.000 hommes ont débarqué au péril de leur vie.

N'oublions jamais les 3000 morts, disparus ou blessés au soir du 6 juin 1944 tombés sur cette plage.

Sculpture d'Anilore Banon en Normandie sur la plage d'Omaha Beach à Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer en hommage à tous ceux qui ont sacrifié leur vie pour rendre la liberté aux Français.

L'oeuvre "LES BRAVES" est constituée de 3 éléments :

Les ailes de l'Espoir : pour que le souffle qui a porté ces hommes le 6 juin 44 continue de nous inspirer en nous rappelant qu'ensemble il est toujours possible de changer l'avenir

Debout la Liberté ! Pour que leur exemple nous aide à nous tenir debout face à toutes les formes d'inhumanité

Les ailes de la Fraternité : Pour que cet élan de fraternité nous rappelle toujours notre responsabilité envers l'Autre comme envers nous même

 

Cet ensemble de 3 sculptures "Les braves" (9 mètres de hauteur et 15 mètres de largeur) est l'oeuvre d'Anilore Banon. Elles ont été érigées sur la plage de Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer (Omaha beach) lors du soixantième anniversaire du débarquement et n'avaient reçu qu'une autorisation d'occupation temporaire de trois mois. Trois ans après, elles sont toujours en place mais sont menacées par l'application de la "loi littoral" qui interdit toute construction sur la plage.

-au centre, l'oeuvre intitulée "Debout la liberté" commémore le courage des hommes qui se lèvent et se dressent contre le totalitarisme.

Les voiles évoquent la mer d'où sont arrivés les libérateurs:

 

-à droite, "les ailes de l'espoir" illustrent l'espérance d'un monde plus heureux, et commémore l'engagement de ceux qui aujourd'hui continuent le combat pour la démocratie.

-à gauche, "les ailes de la fraternité" illustrent cette approche fraternelle de l'humanité qui responsabilise chacun et commémore l'engagement de ceux qui combattent pour l'établissement et le respect d'une égalité universelle des Droits de l'homme.

Erigé sur le sable de la plage d’Omaha Beach, en hommage aux 35.000 soldats alliés qui débarquèrent en ce lieu, le 6 juin 1944, et aux 3.000 victimes, morts, disparus et blessés au soir du D-Day, le monument « Les Braves », œuvre du sculpteur Anilore Banon, dont les voiles d’acier se dressent au pied des marches du monument Signal de Saint-Laurent-sur- Mer, a été inauguré le 5 juin 2004, à la veille du 60ème anniversaire du débarquement de Normandie.

Au centre, dressée vers le ciel, les pieds baignés par le flux et le reflux de la mer, « Debout la liberté », dont le sommet culmine à 9 mètres au-dessus du sol, célèbre le courage des hommes qui se lèvent pour affronter et vaincre la barbarie et le totalitarisme. A sa gauche, « les ailes de la fraternité » commémorent l’engagement de ceux qui combattent pour l’établissement et le respect d’une égalité universelle des Droits de l’homme.
