After being stranded in a cave in northern Thailand since June 23, the mission to rescue 12 boys and their coach finally ended successfully on Tuesday. As the world cheered their rescue, the incident also inspired stirring and heartfelt illustrations from artists across the world.
Here are some of the most wonderful illustrations doing the rounds of the internet.
One of the best illustration to visualize the colossal effort of #ThaiCaveResue, from the divers in the frontier to the volunteer cooks and farmers giving up their harvest this year. This is what humanity could achieve at our best. Glad that everyone’s safe now! pic.twitter.com/w96yQZh4s9
