National Mall in Washington D.C. Covered in Handmade Bones for ‘One Million Bones’ Genocide Awareness Project

One Million Bones

Last weekend the National Mall in Washington, D.C. was covered in one million handcrafted human bones in the collaborative art project, “One Million Bones.” The installation served as a “visible petition” against ongoing genocide and mass atrocities in Sudan, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burma, Somalia, and Syria. The bones, made of paper mach√©, clay, and other materials, were made over the past 3 years by 100,000 people in 30 countries. “One Million Bones” was created by The Art of Revolution.
