There are many ways in which to tell a story. Some of us use words. Others use images. This lady uses sand.

Her tale is about the German invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII. I’d suggest grabbing a box of tissues before you sit down to watch her weave her magic. She’s absolutely brilliant.

    Wow, this girl is amazing! Such precision and wonderful artwork, it was devastating to see her have to rub them out. Thank you for finding and sharing this Katherine.

    She’s incredible, isn’t she? I, too, always think it’s such a shame that her gorgeous work all gets rubbed out…
