5 things you need to know about the Atlantic’s first underwater art museum
The museum is designed to provide a 'social commentary'
As well as its eco qualities the sculptures have been designed to make visitors consider other current moral issues.
One of the more haunting pieces is The _Raft of Lampedusa_ — which shows a lifeboat with 13 refugees on board. The piece is a reflection on Théodore Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa.
Taylor commented: “Drawing parallels between the abandonment suffered by sailors in this shipwreck scene and the current refugee crisis, the work is not intended as a tribute or memorial to the many lives lost but as a stark reminder of the collective responsibility of our now global community.”
