- Sand sculptures were created at beaches around the UK to honour fallen servicemen and women of the First World War
- They were designed by specialists in ephemeral artwork, who carried out practice designs the day before.
- The images included poet Wilfred Owen and footballer and army officer Walter Tull.
Specialists artists designed more than 30 images, trained teams and organised the logistics for the different locations - all with different tides.
They arrived on Armistice Day at 3:00 in terrible weather conditions to start the artwork.
They had a window of a few hours to draw on the wet beach, but they were always meant to only be there for a few hours.
As the sun rose, 1000s of people gathered to watch them draw portraits, some as high as six foot.
At 11:00, as silence was held, the sea took the sculptures.
Today the sculptors were in Nottingham, where this time they were working with ice, designing an ice bar.
