Vietnamese Sand Art

My coworker Bien returned to Vietnam recently to visit his family. He hadn't seen his twin brother and two of his sisters in 19 years!

He brought this back for me. It's made with very fine colored sand. Isn't it amazing?


The other side has a different picture!

Here's a video showing how its done.
