It’s known as sand animation, and basically it’s a live sand art performance where the artist creates a series of images using sand by drawing lines and figures with their hand.
The sand animation performer will often use the aid of an overhead projector so you can see the pictures come to life right before your eyes.
Honestly, it’s quite mesmerizing to watch…. the talent for someone to be able to even do this is incredible.
Take a look at the video below as sand art artist Kseniya Simonova tells a chilling tale using her hands and sand.
