“Ocean Atlas” is the world’s largest underwater sculpture by Jason deCaires. The sculpture is 18-feet-tall, weigh 60 tons and it shows a young Bahamian girl supporting the ceiling of the ocean on her shoulders.
“Ocean Atlas” is created with pH-neutral marine cement which is engineered to last for hundreds of years also serves as an artificial reef to foster local marine life.
“Ocean Atlas” is part of the Sir Nicholas Nuttall Coral Reef Sculpture Garden in the Bahamas. The project aims to help to grow more reefs and stop them from collapsing.
In addition to Jason deCaires’s works, artists Willicey Tynes’s and Andret John’s pieces are also on display on the Sir Nicholas Nuttall Coral Reef Sculpture Garden.
