Artist uses salt to create masterpieces

Artist Dino Tomic usually creates works of art using pencil and paper, but lately he has been using a unique medium: salt.

The Norway-based artist begins with a black canvas and uses a plastic squeeze bottle to draw with salt. He has drawn animals, portraits of characters from the show Game of Thrones and mandalas, which are spiritual symbols for Hinduism and Buddhism.

One mandala he completed took 25 hours over the course of three days to complete. He believes the artwork is the world's largest salt mandala, he explained on YouTube.
