    5-year-old twins lay bones on Washington Mall


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter Anelia photographed five-year-old twins Samson and Charlotte participating in the One Million Bones project that was held on the National Mall in Washington, DC, on June 8. The project was founded in 2009 by social practice artist Naomi Natale. According to the website for One Million Bones, Natale's vision was to collect one million handmade bones and display them on the National Mall in 2013. iReporter Anelia says the bones were made out of ceramic and the project is to raise awareness about genocide. 'The atmosphere on the mall was very sombre,' she described. 'As music played, volunteers dressed in white, the project's signature color, picked up ceramic bones from piles along the side of the grass, and under the direction of group leaders, laid them next to a plain white carpet in the middle.' She says she did not participate in the event, but did observe.
