The island of Lanzarote in Spain has opened Europe’s first underwater Museum. About it writes Daily Mail.
Atlantico exhibits were more than 300 human sculptures life-size, located at a depth of about 12 meters under water. They have been used to create dozens of installations.
Made of special materials, sculptures hundreds of years will be able to stay under water, without being destroyed or causing harm to the ecosystem. To work on the creation of the Museum took almost three years.
Atlantico was organized not only for entertainment, but to focus attention on the problems of protection of the environment, particularly marine ecology. It is a project by British sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor (Jason deCaires Taylor).
For stunts Taylor invited residents of Lanzarote. The sculptures depict people of both sexes and of different ages.
