SILENT SENTINELS
 

POINTE
DU
HOC

At the tip of a promontory, overlooking 100 foot cliffs, a gargantuan teutonic heaume, reminiscent of those used to protect the medieval warrior, mounts the guard. A long narrow aperture, like a vigilant eye, scans the horizon. A modern cyclops ready to devour those who dare approach.



From the tops of high wind-swept bluffs by the edge of the seas, a phalanx of truculent, immutable warriors startle.
