Here is a tale of the invasion of the Ukraine by Germany during WWII as told in sand by the 2009 winner of the Ukraine's Got Talent, Kseniya Simonova. The imagery is simply amazing and powerful as she shows tranquil life being disrupted by war. Life, death, memory and love are depicted simply through the use of sand, a light table and a pair of hands.
The words in the final scene translate to "You are always near."
It had me in tears at the end. Beautiful. Simply beautiful.
