Colorful swirling patterns in Russia’s Uralkali sylvinite mines. Layers of carnallite — a mineral used in fertilizers — band the tunnel walls, producing these vibrant masterpieces. The breathtaking motifs only came to light after photographer Viktor Lyagushkin decided to share his images.
Viktor said: “If you ask me about my strongest impression, my mind was blown with the fact that the miners created this wonderful underground realm and they did not know that.
“Of course, their main task was to win the ore, and it turned out they created the most beautiful place of work and had no idea they did that.”
