This has absolutely nothing to do with my usual topics but I make no apology for posting this because the artistry is stunningly beautiful. I was sent a link to Kseniya Simonova’s sand art by a correspondent on a mailing list I subscribe to. Apparently the artist is telling the story of a ukrainian family before, during and after the bombing of their town in the second world war.
I understand that Ms Simonova was a contestant on Ukraine’s version of “Britain’s got talent”. This lady has real talent, unlike some of the contestants I have seen on the UK’s version. It looks as if Ukrainian television may be in a better place than ITV.
