A ghostly face of Leni Riefenstahl emerges out of the landscape of the Konigsee in the Berchtesgaden Alps. Leni Riefenstahl was one of the first directors of mountain films in the 1930's. 

She stares directly upon the viewer, taken from a film still of the Blue Light (1930). In which she plays a mountain witch cast out of her comunity to live in the wilderness almogst the animals. Runic patterns hint at the possibility of rare minerals and crystals in the mountains of her homeland. The picture itself is divided up into triangular shapes echoing the crystals of which make up the magical properties of the earth and rocks.
