La Evolución Silenciosa

"The Silent Evolution" in English that is...

This morning I stumbled upon these images of some very cool & strange sculptures/statues under the sea in Mexico. They are so lifelike it's amazing.



To see more images of La Evolucion Silenciosa, visit:
Jason deCaires Taylor's website


Also, here's a little more info:

"Take a dive and see the 400 eerie “bodies” serving as the seed to a new artificial coral reef. The underwater sculpture by Jason deCaires Taylor titled La Evolución Silenciosa (The Silent Evolution) sits ~30 feet under water off the coast of Cancun/Isla Mujeres, Mexico. The sculpture is made with material that attracts all types of sea critters; with time a spirited coral reef will spring to life in its place."
