Environmentally inspired artist, Jason deCaires Taylor, created a hauntingly beautiful underwater museum with his life-like statues providing habitat for marine life, coral re-growth and mystery for divers to explore.

This featured sculpture, Grenada, is installed in the underwater museum, MUSA (Museo Subacuatico Del Arte) off the coast of Cancún.

“Jason not only makes artificial coral reefs from statues he’s cast from live human models, but he’s also an accomplished photographer. Once heard explaining how photographing the statues underwater is actually his favorite part of the whole process, Jason’s alluring photos clearly demonstrate why. His beautiful record of the biological growth that takes place on the very figures he so painstakingly creates offers viewers a window into a magical natural world that is constantly evolving.” —Marcelina Cavat – Angel Azur Movie.
