Public Boneyard Calls Attention To Ongoing Genocides [Pics]
A handcrafted mass grave was set up at the National Mall in the country's capital.
The National Mall in Washington DC was recently filled with nearly a million bones to raise awareness of genocide and ongoing wars in countries like Sudan and Somalia.
The One Million Bones were made from clay and papier-mâché over the last three years with the help of more than 100,000 people in 30 countries. It then took more than 1,000 volunteers, all dressed in white, more than four hours to lay out the mass grave.
