Underwater sculptures

A man of many talents, that is Jason deCaires Taylor. The English/Guyanese sculpture is not only a very good diver and underwater photographer, he also creates the most enchanting sculptures I have ever seen. His underwater scenes have a certain tranquility and mystery about them. I can stare at them for hours and feel like these sculptures, who are slowly becoming part of a coral reef, were actual people, who had a life, a story to tell.

Taylor’s underwater sculpture park off the coast of Grenada in the West Indies is now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His latest creation is MUSA (Museo Subaquatico de Arte), a monumental museum with a collection of over 450 public sculptural works, submerged off the coast of Cancun, Mexico; described by Forbes as one of the world’s most unique travel destinations. With his work, Taylor wants to¬†encourage environmental awareness, instigate social change and lead us to appreciate the breathtaking natural beauty of the underwater world.

Take a few minutes to look at the videos of his work and let me know what you think.
