At the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, the first underwater museum is opened. It is situated close to the coast of the Canary Islands.
This unusual museum was created by the artist from Britain Jason de Kaires Taylor. He has been living for several years on the Atlantic Ocean coast, creating exhibits for the underwater gallery.
The museum is located at a depth of 15 meters. The exposition will be able to enjoy divers and tourists who rent a boat with a transparent bottom.
This unusual gallery is designed to increase the marine biomass in the region. It is this area is declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
To create exhibits, the artist used special materials that do not harm the environment and resist corrosion.
The sculptures in the underwater museum are divided into three thematic groups. The first theme — migrants, the second — climate change, and the third — environmental protection.
