This is truly one of those "OMG" moments that I felt I had to share with the rest of you.

Artist Jason deCaires Taylor recently completed “The Silent Evolution,” an underwater museum and permanent sculpture exhibit set up in the waters near Cancun, Mexico. It is located in the National Marine Park of Isla Mujeres, Cancun, and Punta Nizuc.

Here is a link to the Yahoo News page -

The video is no longer available there, but it is still on Youtube-

Take the time to check this out. Its truly amazing!

It will be really interesting to see how the environment will reclaim these installations as the years pass by.

Wow, this is so very cool! What a wonderful idea this artist had.
I think I may have found a more recent video. It shows how the coral is forming on the figures of the children in the circle.
I wish we could hit "fast-forward" on this project and see what it looks like 10 years from now... or 20 yrs ... or 100!
Future archeologists will think they have uncovered part of the lost City of Atlantis! :)
