Recommended Posts



This is amazing. I got this from another site.


This is from Ukraine's Got Talent. I recieved this in an email and was

mesmerized until she finished. Drogar-SunGlass(LBG).gif



This video shows the winner of 2009's " Ukraine's Got Talent",

Kseniya Simonova, 24, drawing a series of pictures on an illuminated

sand table showing how ordinary people were affected by the German

invasion during World War II. Her talent, which admittedly is a strange

one, is mesmeric to watch.


The images, projected onto a large screen, moved many in the

audience to tears and she won the top prize of about $75,000.


She begins by creating a scene showing a couple sitting holding

hands on a bench under a starry sky, but then warplanes appear and the

happy scene is obliterated.


It is replaced by a woman's face crying, but then a baby arrives

and the woman smiles again. Once again war returns and Miss Simonova

throws the sand into chaos from which a young woman's face appears.


She quickly becomes an old widow, her face wrinkled and sad,

before the image turns into a monument to an Unknown Soldier.


This outdoor scene becomes framed by a window as if the viewer

is looking out on the monument from within a house..


In the final scene, a mother and child appear inside and a man

standing outside, with his hands pressed against the glass, saying



The Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine, resulted

in one in four of the population being killed with eight to 11 million

deaths out of a population of 42 million.


Kseniya Simonova says:


"I find it difficult enough to create art using paper and

pencils or paintbrushes, but using sand and fingers is beyond me. The

art, especially when the war is used as the subject matter, even brings

some audience members to tears. And there's surely no bigger
