Leo Davelka, 5, makes a "salt angel" at Sunday's Motoi Yamamoto salt sculpture dismantling ceremony at the Mint Museum uptown. Artist Motoi Yamamoto created a temporary large-scale saltwork at the Mint from February 18-March 2, 2013. Motivated by grief over the death of his young sister, Yamamoto has been working in the medium of salt for almost 20 years. On Sunday March 3, the Dismantling Ceremony was held, and participants took part in scooping up the salt for later disbursement in the ocean. DIEDRA LAIRD - dlaird@charlotteobserver.com
