This is the work of an Israeli artist that creates animated stories using nothing but sand on a backlit piece of glass.  The technique is amazing, requiring a great deal of control. 

The story displayed features a naked girl playing the flute, followed by a swan that appears, then an eagle (which I think is supposed to represent the US).

It's part of my trend on non-computerized animation.

Check out the video above called I Met the Walrus which has some beautiful hand-drawn animation. Stats for Animated Sand Paintings Trending: Older & Mild
