A 3-year-old boy named Aylan Kurdi and his 5-year-old brother, Galip, were photographed face down in the surf Wednesday morning. They both reportedly died on a boat that capsized while carrying them to the Greek island of Kos. The brothers were attempting to reach Canada, where their aunt lives.
Artists from all over the world are now sharing amazing tributes to the widely seen photo of Aylan under the Turkish hashtag #KiyiyaVuranInsanlik, or #HumanityWashedAshore. WARNING: Some are quite graphic.
