underwater statues by Jason deCaires Taylor

Have you seen Jason deCaires Taylor‘s underwater sculptures?


The Silent Evolution

400 life-size figures. Near Cancun / Isla Mujeres, Mexico. I really want this to be my next scuba diving trip!

The statues form an artificial reef, which helps to take pressure off natural reefs, are made from durable, secure and environmentally sensitive materials. They can support an entire ecosystem.

If you think this is getting slightly creepy, just wait til you see what happens at night….

As if life sized sculptures as artificial reefs wasn’t enough, the project is full of breathtaking photography. So much light! A celestial, yet somewhat eerie feeling emerges through the images.

Be prepared to spend a while at Underwater Sculpture.

p.s. — anyone want to go to Mexico with me?
