The Museum of Underwater Sculpture Ayia Napa (MUSAN) opened to the public, which features the work of sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor.
The museum — located 200 meters off the coast of Aiya Napa, a southeastern Cyprus resort town — is meant to resemble an underground forest and even has a few sculptures of children playing alongside sculptures of mystical characters.
A collection of submarine figurative sculptures dispersed amongst a series of sculpted organic trees and subterranean plants will create the World's first underwater forest.
A symbol to enhance the story of Ayia Napa's newly created Marine Protected Zone, whilst acknowledging the deforestation practices of the past.
The statues’ faces are inspired by the locals and were made using non-toxic materials with a neutral PH and placed on a sandy bottom at a depth varying between three and five meters.
These splendid sculptures are positioned a few meters away from each other, and weigh about ten tons and stand at a height of 8 feet tall.
The works were created by the British environmental sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, famous for creating new habitats for the restoration of marine fauna and flora in multiple locations throughout the world.
