The words, they escape me. To describe Kseniya Simonova’s art as amazing is an understatement. Simonova won this year’s Ukraine’s Got Talent! show with a dramatic and beautiful sand animation that tells the story of her nation’s painful history during World War II. Her emotionally-charged piece moved the audience to tears.

Unfortunately I can’t understand the symbolism nor the lyrics to the music, but it certainly moved me in other ways. Have a look for yourself.

The 24-year old sand animator from Evpatoria has used her $1,000,000 Ukraninan Hryvnia prize to buy a house and to set up a children’s charity.
