Christ of the Abyss
One of 3 such statues, this one can be found at the bottom of the Dry Rocks reef in Key Largo, Florida. 25 feet underwater, it was erected in honor of all the divers who have been lost to the sea.
Mermaid of Grand Cayman
This Amphitrite (wife of Poseidon) statue, was installed at a depth of 55 feet at the Sunset Reef off Grand Cayman Island, West Indies. Standing tall at 9 feet, the ‘Siren of Sunset Reef’ has been underwater since the year 2000.
The Underwater Temple Garden
Deep in the Ceningan Channel (Bali), lies a unique temple garden. This underwater art exhibit has several statues of Buddha.
The temple garden is at a depth of 30 m. Decorated with beautiful coral walls and covered in aquatic flora, the statues seem to take on a life of their own.
Guardian of the Reef
This 13 ft tall warrior seems to have found peace in the sea floor of the West Bay of Grand Cayman Island. It’s not far from Amphitrite, and it was sculpted by the same artist (Simon Morris).
This gentle statue stands tall at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea off the city of Civitavecchia in Italy.
Lake Baikal of Siberia, Russia is the deepest lake on Earth. A small, peculiar sculpture of mysterious origins lies alone on the floor.
Shelly of Shaw’s
Excepting fishes, Shelly is the lone resident of Shaw’s Cove off California’s Laguna Beach.
