Ukraine's Got Talent
I am not sure what category to put this in - but if you have eight and a half minutes to spare, then click on to this video clip below. It shows the amazing sand artistry skills of 24 year old, Kseniya Simonova, winner of Ukraine's Got Talent 2009. What is unusual is not only the extraordinary creativity of the artist but also the strong emotional reaction of the audience as judges and members of the audience are brought to tears. Using a sand-filled light-box, she portrayed the story of the Soviet Union's sacrifices (almost 30,000,000 were killed) during the Great Patriotic War, as the USSR's fight against the Nazis in the Second World War is termed. Extraordinary!
Update: I just found a second video by the same lady (obviously in the same competition) - outstanding once again (see below) - JS
