Viral An Artist Soaked a Dress in the Dead Sea for 2 Months and the Results Are Stunning
An Israeli artist submerged a black gown for two months in the salt-rich Dead Sea and photographed it as it became coated with crystals.
The "Salt Bride" project by Sigalit Landau was inspired by the Yiddish play "The Dybbuk," in which a Hasidic maiden named Leah becomes possessed by the dead lover she was destined to marry.
A press release for the project says the sea transformed the dress from a "symbol associated with death and madness into the wedding dress it was always intended to be.”
Photographs of the magnificently crystallized dress are on display at London's Marlborough Contemporary.
