Artist creates sculpture of tragic Syrian migrant child Aylan Kurdi

The heart-breaking picture of the toddler,  Aylan Kurdi's body lying face down taken hours after the four-year-old Syrian refugee drowned in the Aegean Sea, which touched everyone all over the world has now been recreated by a Finnish sculptor.

The sculpture entitled 'Until the Sea Shall Him Free', created by Pekka Jylhä, is on display at the Helsinki Contemporary gallery in Finland.

Do you think it's creepy or touching?

This undoubtedly relives the agonising experience of the boy. It equally depicts the vanity of life. Quite ingenious and touching!!!
