Wow. Ksenyia Simonova, of the Ukraine, is an incredible artist. Astounding how much emotion can be conveyed in just a few lines of sand. And so transitory; each image lasts, complete, for but a few short moments, before another is constructed on its foundation.

[Update: Oops, my bad. I knew this looked familiar, but I didn’t look far enough back in the Ambiance prior posts. Randy spotted her work first, 3 weeks ago! Sorry about that, Randy! I was swamped that week and didn’t have time to watch it then, then I saw somebody else post about it today at another blog.]

    Yes, it is beautiful. And she is impressive.

    Can’t see it too many times as far as I’m concerned. It made me think of Navajo sand paintings and Tibetan sand mandalas — powerful and transient as life itself (dust to dust?). The difference is that those invoke eternity and this invokes history. Those invoke harmony and these invoke suffering.
