A closer inspection of the elements that make up the Spiral Jetty (salt crystals, basalt rocks and mud) an earthwork sculpture constructed in April 1970 that is considered to be the most important work of American sculptor Robert Smithson. Built on the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake near Rozel Point in Utah entirely of mud, salt crystals, and basalt rocks, Spiral Jetty forms a 1,500-foot-long, 15-foot-wide counterclockwise coil jutting from the shore of the lake. The sculpture is sometimes visible and sometimes submerged, depending upon the water level of the Great Salt Lake.
