Artist Leaves Dress In The Dead Sea For 2 Months And It Turns Into Glittering Salt Crystal Masterpiece

Israelite artist, Sigalit Landau, started a new art project called the Salt Bride and submerged a black gown in the Dead Sea! The gown spent 2 months in the salt-rich and it was totally worth it once you see the pictures of the results below.

The project is an eight-part photo series inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play titled Dybbuk. The play is about a young Hasidic woman who becomes possessed by the spirit of her dead lover, and Landau’s salt-encrusted gown is a replica of the one worn in the dramatic production of the 1920s.

Landau wanted to record the gradual process and visited the gown several times during the process. Check out the results and share this with your friends.
