Kseniya Simanova, Sand Artist of the Ukraine

Have you ever seen something as beautiful?

So what is live sand animation doing on a site about travel and world culture?

Well, it’s on a tv show in the Ukraine and… it’s something to do with the second world war – look, proof that Ukranians cry! It’s, uh, an example of how art crosses borders and…ah, what the hell, it’s our website – if we can’t post something beautiful for the hell of it what’s the point in being here?

Sit back and watch the amazing art from Kseniya Simanova. The intelligent article about her art is here in the Guardian
