The island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, Spain, has set up of the first set of sculptures in what will be the first completely underwater museum in Europe. The museum is located off the coast of Lanzarote at a depth of 12-14 meters and features the works of British artist Jason deCaires Taylor, who has created similar works in both Cancun, Mexico and Grenada in the West Indies. The sculptures on display include several human figures representing people engaging in mobile phones, walking, taking pictures and selfies. Another installation titled ‘the raft of lampedusa’ depicts a boat of figures desperately waiting for treatment and aid, representing the ongoing refugee crisis. The underwater sculptures will eventually attract and promote growth of plant and animal life, symbolizing the symbiotic relationship humans have with nature.
