Christina Angelina transformed an abandoned water tank in the Southern California desert into a haunting work of art.

Her mural "Kinetoscope" (in collaboration with artist Ease One) features two panels of female faces that partially circle the inner walls.

"Each individual face embodies a specific emotion tied to a meaningful moment when Angelina trusted her intuition, an inherent sense often ignored by society," her website notes.

Angelina told The Huffington Post she chose a tank in the Coachella Valley's "Slab City" area near the Salton Sea because, "I love painting in remote locations where you can find beautiful structures that are in disrepair. I find walls in that state to be breathtaking, so I love adding to them, especially in a unique landscape."

Angelina used spray paint for the faces and latex as background. The project took four days, she said.

Time well-spent.
