No, it’s not an art installation. These millions of fragments of glass are located in the junkyard of Israel’s only glass container factory, located in Yeruham.
Photographer Oded Balilty captured the stunning landscape of glass mountains, towering 50 feet tall, and documented the daily routine of the workers in the factory.
For the past 50 years, these factory workers have worked everyday, 24 hours a day, to give broken glass new life.
The shards are ground and later moved into ovens to be fired into new glass bottles, according to the Associated Press.
The bottles that arrive at the factory are the defect products produced by Phoenicia Glass Works Ltd., the sole float glass manufacturer in Israel.
