Salt Art

Beautiful drawings and unique sculptures created out of salt by talented Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto.

Intricate salt labyrinths and creative art installations take many hours to complete and require hundreds of pounds of salt.

    That staircase reminds me of the one from The Lord of the Rings when the Fellowship was in the Mines of Moria and Frodo and Aragorn were trapped and the staircase was collapsing.

    @itai

    I wonder why salt, and not, say, cocaine?

  12. Luna

    @itai - I know that salt is used to purify spaces in Japanese culture, so maybe that’s the significance of its use by this Japanese artist.

    Salt has the obvious advantage of not attracting incects. Sand would be too heavy and not at all easy to remove. Yes, cocaine would be a real breakthrough, but it would be unaffordable in such quantities.

    Those are really beautiful art. But isn’t it, somehow a kind of waste? What is he going to do with all those salt after the exhibitions? I mean, there were times when salt was considered as valuable as gold…

    @Shandya

    There were times like that. Now salt is easy to make and is practically unlimited in quantity as you can just boil off sea water.
