I only just learned about Kseniya Simonova's spectacularly beautiful sand art performances.
Do yourself a favor: block out 9 minutes of time, and go watch her amazing performance at the season finale of the 2009 "Ukraine's Got Talent" competition.
I came across this video after seeing another very nice performance of hers, at this year's Melody Amber chess tournament, where she entertained the hosts and players.
The chess art is very nice, but really, that wartime romance is superb. Enjoy.
