Artist Uses Salt To Shape Insane Portraits Of Our Favorite NBA Stars

Pass the salt, please.

We're familiar with the more common traditional uses for table salt: from seasoning our pasta water to mixing it with pepper to getting help with the ol' tequila shot, it's got quite an array of uses.

But we haven't seen it used like this before:

Artist Rob Ferrel uses table salt to create stunningly detailed portraits of some of the biggest names in the NBA, including Stephen Curry, Matthew Dellavedova and LeBron James.

Here, Ferrel creates each portrait with extreme precision — only to wipe it away in the end.
