S for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 6: S is For...


Sand Fantasy


There's is very little more entrancing than seeing Ilana Yahav create her world famous sand art. She draws with her fingers in sand on a lighted glass table to the accompaniment of beautiful background music. Spell-binding. Stunning. Spectacular.

Her website provides more information as well as nine video clips that are incredibly enjoyable. She also presents a small video collection on YouTube. Each video can be enjoyed time after time!

She's a stellar sand artist!


 
Did you enjoy her art?

Oh my gosh, I used "sand" too and posted the same video. Synchronicity? My husband and I were both blown away by her art.

The same technique is used in an advert for tea here in the UK (only apparently using tea leaves)! I'd never seen this done before and it's fascinating and beautiful.

Alan Burnett said...

That is breathtaking. Never even heard of sand art before. Thanks so much for introducing me to it.

Pam said...

I have seen her sand art several times and it always amazes me.

Carol said...

It's fascinating to watch her. Incredible what can be done.

Stan Ski said...

Amazing skills - just shows us what can be achieved when we put our minds to something.

Serline said...

Amazing! Reminds me of another group of artists who work with a "transient" medium: senior citizens in the city of Dalian writing beautiful calligraphy on sidewalks using a wet mop... Their works last but a few seconds, but the process of creation is just as mesmerizing.

Lucka said...

Amazing creative art. Thanks for sharing it.
