Artist Soaks Dress in Salt for Two Years

The Dead Sea that lies between Israel and Jordan is nearly 10 times as salty as the ocean. Not much can grow there.

But Israeli artist Sigalit Landau has created a sculpture by immersing a black dress in the Dead Sea for two years, letting the salt create what looks like a sugar-coated design.

“It looks like snow, like sugar, like death’s embrace; solid tears, like a white surrender to fire and water combined,” Landau told the Jerusalem Post.
