Now you will be able to see a breathtaking underwater museum in Europe called the Atlantic Museum, it will be made at a depth of 39 feet and viewable to its visitors by a scuba dive or from glass-bottomed boats
This museum comprises of fantastic and beautiful installations that draw the attention towards the society dividing the present arena with the past one. It’s the first underwater museum in Europe.
This exhibit shows a man with a mug standing by a counter, with a dog lying on the ground at his feet
Atlantic Museum has been designed by British artist Jason deCaires Taylor, who is the author of similar creations in Cancun, Mexico and Grenada in the West Indies
The exhibition includes a sculpture called Content, featuring a couple taking an underwater selfie
The statues are carefully lowered into the water using chains and supports
Museum is made up of 400 sculptures
The Raft of Lampedusa is a poignant structure echoing the huge movement of refugees across the sea to Europe and the frequent fatalities that occur
The structures are modelled to attract plant and marine wildlife, to therefore represent the harmonious relationship that can exist between humans and nature
The ethereal figures are made from high-density, pH neutral concrete that doesn’t affect the marine ecosystem or local flora and fauna
The project has been designed on a conservational level to create a large scale artificial reef for local fish species and also to raise awareness of current threats facing the world’s oceans.
