Two years ago the British artist Jason De Caries Taylor proposed the brilliant idea of creating a museum of impressive sculptures under the sea with the aim of recovering the marine ecosystem.
It was about 400 sculptures, exact copies of the coastal inhabitants of the cities of Cancun and Isla Mujeres. Taylor got in his work an almost photographic likeness: according to witnesses, the sculptures have the same height as the people who copy and "lifelike".
The project was carried out with the donations of the people and local companies. The first 100 figures cost him about $ 350,000 to the sculptor.
The exhibition, located at a shallow (about 9 meters), is entitled 'The silent evolution' ('The Silent Evolution') pursuing the noble goal of preserving nature: to recover the ecosystem suffer destruction of divers.
The word "evolution" was used not by chance: the basic material with which the sculptures are built is the concrete, which has the same rate that the pH of seawater.
This factor, together with the porous surface of the figures, gave an ideal environment for marine creatures such as, polyps that have a skeleton of lime, jellyfish and sea anemones.
