Wife of Lot: Bible
When the large cities of the plain of Jordan are destroyed because of their people’s lack of discernment of good and bad, Lot’s wife looks back and turns into a pillar of salt. Salt preserves her in a fixed state. Is this symbolic of her being tied to the security that city culture is assumed to offer?
