An artist decided to leave a black gown in the Dead Sea for two months, turning it into a crystal work of art.
The gown was recently removed for display, and the result is nothing short of stunning as you can see from the photos.
This project is an eight-part photo series named 'Salt Bride'. It was inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play titled 'Dybbuk'.
The play is about a young woman who was possessed by the spirit of her dead lover. This salt-encrusted gown is a replica of the gown worn in the 1920s dramatic production.
Landau often checked on the black gown many times during the process so as to capture the gradual salt crystalisation.
The dress itself is not on display, but photos of the dress can be viewed at London’s Marlborough Contemporary where they are on display till September 3.
