Back in 2006, British artist Jason de Caires Taylor opened a unique exhibition - the Moliner underwater sculpture park on the Caribbean island of Grenada. Since then, underwater sculptures have delighted viewers from all over the world. The park recently added 27 new sculptures created by Taylor and four local artists. Let's see how the updated beauty looks now!





The Moliner underwater sculpture park on the Caribbean island of Grenada is a unique exhibition of the British sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor. The park recently added 27 new sculptures created by Taylor and four local artists. All sculptures are inspired by the annual Spicemas carnival in Grenada, which dates back to the ancient origins of the local population, and where traditional costumes are displayed, dances and songs take place. The new batch of sculptures is called "Coral Carnival", and for the first time includes colored objects.



According to Jason de Caires Taylor, he adheres to environmentally friendly approaches in his work. All of his sculptures are made from high-quality stainless steel and pH-neutral cement, which means they are safe for marine life. The bases of the sculptures are made in the form of realistic rock formations with holes in which sea creatures, such as octopuses and lobsters, can hide. And the paints that were used on some sculptures are made from natural pigments.

New sculptures include Grenada-specific masquerade characters in traditional garb. All of them are located along the seabed at a depth of about three meters: they can easily be viewed by lovers of underwater swimming.
