GRENADA’S UNDERWATER SCULPTURES : A TRIBUTE TO FALLEN AFRICAN SLAVES [PHOTOS + VIDEO] **AMAZING IMAGES**

 

Located in Grenada’s Moilinere Bay, Jason de Caires Taylor’s underwater sculptures are a momument created to pay homage to the hundreds of slaves that sought freedom or were forced to jump overboard slave ships travelling through the Middle Passage from West Africa to the Americas and the Caribbean.

Moiliniere Bay suffered considerable storm damage in recent years and the placement of an artificial structure has provided a new base for marine life to proliferate. The sculptures were also designed to create a diversion from other areas of coral reef currently endangered by over use from water actvities.
