The concept of beautifully photographed documentation of statues placed under ocean water was so intriguing that I read this in a single sitting. Initial, introductory essays relate how the author turned from scuba to sculpture before uniting these passions. Generally with an anti-establishment, anti-apathy theme, many of the figurative works are shown in various stations of transition from installation to reef transformation.

AWESOME! This book is more than beautiful pictures of underwater art work (although there are plenty of those!). Jasone deCaires Taylor is working to create artificial reefs, protect at risk reef habitats by providing tourists alternate dive/viewing locations and raise awareness of reef conservation issues; all through art! Cause art has never been so beautiful or compelling!

It would be great to have a vacation underwater and see the blue seas. This book is marvellous. The part that I like is the statue is in underwater. The statue look mysterious and scary, though
