Kseniya Simonova's Amazing Sand Drawing

I'm a fan of animation, and this art form is live animation. The woman performing won Ukraine's version of "America's Got Talent" sand painting her interpretation of Germany's occupation of Ukraine in WWII. On the one hand it freshens the pain of a terrible tragedy, and so perhaps nurtures the seeds of another. But there is also great beauty.

It strikes me as an amazing work each and every time I watch it. I'm glad to see the video is circulating as much as it is.
