An Amazing Artist

Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine's version of "America's Got Talent." She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.

If you have a few minutes, watch the video
Kseniya Simonava's Sand Painting

There is a point in the video where a man is speaking in the background,
the audience is in tears while she creates the scene in sand. I only wish
I knew what was being said. Evenso, I found myself transfixed, just
watching. It is so worth seeing these amazing scenes unfold.
