23 Pictures of Submerged Statues That Will Haunt You



I just HAVE to repost this because it is so amazing

There's something mysterious and haunting about submerged objects that are just sitting at the bottom of the ocean, amassing coral and becoming one with the underwater landscape. Maybe it's our fascination with finding mythical places like Atlantis, or maybe it has something to do with our fear of the unknown, whatever it is, submerged objects have an awe-inspiring quality that can't be found above water.

Haunting underwater sculptures are Jason deCaires Taylor's specialty. The internationally acclaimed sculptor creates living underwater installations that offer a mysterious and fleeting glimmer into an oceanic world where art develops from the effects of nature.
