Natalia Netselya is world renown artist, known for her ability to compose complex imagery and even tell stories via the use of sand alone. As she states in the European PlayStation Blog, the piece above is the very first to be inspired by a video game:

"As Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception takes place in the Arabian desert, it provided the perfect backdrop for my sand art. It was fun for me to recreate an iconic character like Nathan Drake in some of the amazing settings from the latest game. I'm sure you'll recognize some familiar sights from Uncharted 3, and I hope you enjoy watching me bring them to life in sand."

Actually, Netselya was inspired enough to craft three different pieces, one for each game. After the cut you'll find her retelling of Uncharted 1 and 2.
