by | 21st, October 2014

OCEAN Atlas is an 18-foot-tall, 60 tonne (pH neutral) cement statue of a girl benath the waves by Nassau in the Bahamas. It is the world’s largest underwater statue.

By Jason deCaires Taylor and commissioned by B.R.E.E.F (Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation), Ocean Atlas “aims to create an underwater sculpture garden in honor of its founder Sir Nicholas Nuttall. It includes other sculptural works by local artists Willicey Tynes and Andret John and an artificial reef trail designed by Reefball.”
