Europe has announced its first underwater museum with several sculptures from international artist Jason deCaires Taylor. It’s currently located on the seafloor of Las Coloradas bay in Lanzarote, Spain.

The Biosphere Reserve project by UNESCO is set to create a large artificial reef made from a series of art installations made from high density, PH neutral concrete that doesn't affect the marine ecosystem.



No corrosive metals and materials were used. The sculptures are submerged at a depth of between 12 and 15 meters and aims to recreate scenes from everyday life.

The artist’s vision is to highlight "the defense of the oceans" and to transmit a level of critical thinking about the commercialization of natural resources.
