The Europe’s First Underwater Sculptures Museum

Jason deCaires Taylor born in 1974, a sculpture and installation artist, who has won an award winning underwater photographer. He has set up his first set of sculptures in the island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, Spain. Which will be known as the first completely underwater museum in Europe.
The sculptures on display include several human figures representing people engaging in mobile phones, walking, taking pictures and selfies. All was made from a very inert type of marine cement designed to last for hundreds of years. Avoid using metals to get rid of corrosive and pollute the environment.

“The longer they are underwater the more the layers of calcium deposit will start to form, so they’ll start to get more and more unrecognizable over time,” Taylor told Good. “That’s one of the reasons I start out with a simple image or quite often a human figure, because I know however much you disfigure the human body you can still recognize some part of it as some identifying feature you can relate to.”
