A Canadian-Ukrainian artist Taras Polataiko looks on at one of the Ukrainian women, dressed in white wedding gowns, who take turns sleeping on display in the museum for a couple of hours every day during his new art project called 'Sleeping Beauties' in The National Art Museum in Kiev, Ukraine, Friday, Sept. 7, 2012. Based on the fairytale 'Sleeping Beauty', the idea of the art-exhibition is for visitors to look at a sleeping girl, and, if they feel the urge, kiss her on the lips. If a sleeping beauty opens up her eyes she's obliged by a legal contract to marry the man. (AP Photo/Efrem Lukatsky)
