Kseniya Simonova – Ukrainian Sand Artist

This video actually shut me up for the full 9 minutes. Its amazing and truly magnificent.Kseniya Simonova won Ukraine’s “Got Talent” contest in 2009, although I have only just come across this now though. Kseniya recounts Germany conquering Ukraine in the Second World War. She brings calm, then conflict. A couple on a bench become a woman’s face; a peaceful walkway becomes a conflagration; a weeping widow morphs into an obelisk for an unknown soldier. She destroys then recreates her scenes – with deft strokes, sprinkles and sweeps she keeps the narrative going. She moves the judges to tears as she subtitles the final scene “you are always near”.
