    Some people believe that humankind's creations are more superb than the wonders of nature, while others think that the opposite is true. However, true art makes use of both in the pursuit of perfection.

    Artists in the Israeli kibbutz Almog submerged a ballerina's tutu in the extremely salty waters of the Dead Sea, creating a 200 kg (440 lbs.) crystal-like sculpture. The layers of salt make the dress look like a wonderful piece of marble, indeed.
