Art is deep at Mexican museum

ON paper, Jason deCaires Taylor’s art – underwater figurative scuptures that ‘[portray] human intervention as positive and affirmative’ when it comes to the natural world — sounds hokey.

But the underwater sculpture park in Grenada that he founded, which offers artificial, sculptural reefs for new ecosystems to establish themselves, is actually quite striking, reminiscent of the ashen mummies of Pompei.

There is an army of some 200 cement men and women to the bottom of Mexico’s Museum of Underwater Art in an attempt to create a vast and surreal reef.
