The Subaquatic Sculpture Museum is located at the West Coast National Park in Quintana Roo, on the Yucatan Peninsula. Famous underwater artist Jason de Caires Taylor, who created the world’s first underwater sculpture park, is overseeing the museum.

Scheduled to open in November, the Subaquatic Sculpture Museum will be the world’s largest underwater museum. The statues will represent traditional as well as modern Mexican narratives. ‘The Silent Evolution’ is a work of art expected to be the final addition to the Subaquatic Sculpture Museum. It will mix growing coral with the concrete to express the passage of time.

Vicissitudes (see the picture above) show a circle of figures which are linked through holding hands. They are life-size casts taken from a group of children. Also theme-based galleries featuring Mayan indigenous warriors or dream catchers will undoubtedly add to the popularity of this museum. [UnderWaterSculpture via ImpactLab]
