Globe-trotting Travel Series #33: Sandpaintings of Wang Chenwei, Weihai, China

Day 33 of the Globe-trotting Travel Series returns to China to feature Wang Chenwei, a sand artist in Weihai, in the eastern province of Shandong. This is a beautiful, meditative and hopeful animation of a sand painting which illustrates a piece of the story of Covid-19 in China and the brave medical and support workers who stood against it. I had to do a little research to find the artist’s name, as the video erroneously attributes the art work to a “man in Shandong”. Let’s recognize this woman’s tribute and contribution.
