Ukraine's famous "Sleeping Beauty" living art exhibit has ended with a not-so-fairy tale twist!

The exhibit featured five women taking turns to sleep on a bed in a museum while guests had the chance to kiss them.

The women and the guests were under contract that if the woman's eyes opened during a kiss, she would have to marry the kisser.

But the exhibit ended in surprise as one of the beauties woke to a kiss -- from another woman.

Neither of them is a lesbian and Ukrainian law strictly forbids same-sex marriage.

But the artist who created the exhibit says the girls could seek refugee status in another country if they do decide to get married. [email protected], September 11, 2012
