A visitor kisses sleeping women during a new art project called 'Sleeping Beauties,' created by a Canadian-Ukrainian artist Taras Polataiko in The National Art Museum in Kiev, Ukraine, Sept. 7, 2012. Five young Ukrainian women, dressed in white wedding gowns, take turns sleeping on display in the museum for a couple of hours every day. 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.
