I so agree they are worth a look. Some of the pieces are so realistic that it is kind of creepy .. brought to mind the body farm .. then others are just breath taking.

The coral and the fish sure like them. So surreal. What a talented sculptor. I wonder how many divers go to see them or if they are protected?

Thanks for posting the link, I really enjoyed the slideshow.

This is great stuff! As an art teacher, I always love finding the living artists among us - the kids just have no interest in dead European white guys - NOR should they :-)
thank you for posting Marion

Well, I'm glad that two people have appreciated this link. I hope more take a look, because these sculptures are WONDERFUL.

I suspect there will be a reef of coral that grows over these, encasing them and protecting them. In a hundred or a thousand years, or 10,000 years, it will be discovered by folks who discover stuff and they will wonder about these like we wonder about those who built Stonehenge, and the Nazca lines and stuff. Will admire them as we would admire the terra-cotta warriers.

Yes, I've been thinking of potential future archeologists too. Wouldn't it be a fabulous find?
