Floating Garden, an installation made entirely of salt.

Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto began working with salt in 1994 after his young sister died of brain cancer. In order to cope with her death, he began making art that reflected his grief. In Japan, salt is used as a part of rituals in some funeral ceremonies and also used to ward off evil spirits and welcome good ones.
