Dress Was In The Dead Sea For 2 Years - You Have To See What It Looks Like Now (Photos)

Israeli artist Sigalit Landau created a salt crystal gown for her eight-part photo series that is inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play “Dybbuk.” She created the gown by submerging a replica of a 1920s style Hasidic gown into the Dead Sea for two months.

The result, according to Bored Panda, was both beautiful and magical. While the gown was soaking in the salt-rich waters, Landau kept taking pictures of its enchanting progress. The photos and crystalline sculpture were put on display at London’s Marlborough Contemporary museum.

Her project is titled “Salt Bride” and is like the one worn in the 1920s production of “Dybbuk” a class hasidic Jewish ghost-story about a woman possessed by the spirit of her deceased suitor who died before they could marry. Landau has been obsessed with the Dead Sea’s ability to crystallize things and had created lamps, hangman’s nooses and and a crystalline island made of shoes.

"Over the years, I learnt more and more about this low and strange place,” Landau said, according to Live Science. “Still, the magic is there waiting for us: new experiments, ideas and understandings. It is like meeting with a different time system, a different logic, another planet. It looks like snow, like sugar, like death's embrace; solid tears, like a white surrender to fire and water combined."
