Sand genius

The Fr M award for unlikely YouTube megavideo (viewed over 14 million times) goes to the winner of "Ukraine has got Talent" 2009, Kseniya Simonova. This lady is astonishing. She is an artist with sand, and what she does with it is unbelievable. As her act goes on, people come and go across her screen, historical figures flash past, and human situations are evoked. Some of the themes she handles bring the audience to tears as she touches their history of war and communism. I've never seen anything like this, and I suspect you won't have either. After watching the first video, you can find a few others of her in the other rounds of "Got Talent". I particularly liked one where she depicts everyday scenes of family life and characters that we have all met...
The Ukraine certainly does have talent.
