Motoi Yamamoto: Salt man!

While browsing my google redder on the weekend, I came across these amazing pics posted by This is love forever ...

Following the untimely death of his young sister, Motoi Yamamoto began making these incredibly intricate ephemeral installations of salt. Not only are his pieces a commentary on the fleeting nature of life but salt is a large part of the death culture of Japan, used often in funerals. Can you imagine seeing one of these in person?
