A stunning new art exhibit is displaying the effects the highly salty Dead Sea had on a dress and people are amazed at the garment’s transformation.

Israeli artist Sigalit Landau’s project, “Salt Bride,” came about after Landau submerged a black gown in the large body of water that rests between Israel and Jordan. The dress spent two months in the Dead Sea and Landau documented the fabric’s changes in a photo series that is now on display at London’s Marlborough Contemporary museum.

From Bored Panda:
“The project is an eight-part photo series inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play titled Dybbuk. The play is about a young Hasidic woman who becomes possessed by the spirit of her dead lover, and Landau’s salt-encrusted gown is a replica of the one worn in the dramatic production of the 1920s.”
“Salt Bride” will be on display in London until September 3. See the stunning transformation below.
