*traditions of folklore

In today’s society, people are beginning to fear the presence of salt in their foods.  The traditional prominent place of the saltshaker on the kitchen table is declining and with it disappears the tradition of folklore, expressions and superstitions.  I tried to give the saltshaker a new role as both a functional and artistic object in an attempt to preserve these traditions.
