Last night after the comment on 虔谦's blog, I did a little research. Here is what i learned:
Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who won Ukraine's version of "America's Got Talent" in 2009. She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.

To enjoy more, go to Youtube, search for "sand animation", "sand art", "sand painting", or the artist's name such as Kseniya Simonova.
On YouTube, I also enjoy sand painting of "You've got a friend" by Ilana Yahav, and Kako Ferenc's interpretation of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons".
Thank you again, 虔谦, for introducing me to the amazing sand art.
