Beautiful! An Israeli artist has produced a sculpture using the natural build-up of salt crystals from the Dead Sea.
"My work is very much concerned with the body and my body wants to be a mirror of the place, and I believe this is true in reverse as well; the body can be like metaphor, you can write on the sand, salt crystallization can act as a "scab", it goes back and forth from the land to the body to several narratives" Sigalit Landau interviewed by @keenonmag Marlborough Contemporary is pleased to present "Salt Bride", a serie of eight large colour prints by @sigalitlandau.

Sigalist Landau submerged a long black gown into the Dead Sea in 2014, leaving it there for three months. She documented the transformation of the dress in a series of photographs as the crystals gradually coated the fabric.
“It looks like snow, like sugar, like death’s embrace,” Landau said in a statement, reports CNN.
