A Magical Underwater Museum, Like Townsville’s MOUA, Has Opened In France

If the French Riviera is already on your travel plans…

A rather stunning underwater museum has just opened on the seabed of the French Riviera, just outside of Cannes. A collection of large Grey faces with closed eyes now sit under the sea, off the coast of the small French island of Île Sainte-Marguerite.

It’s part of the marvellous new exhibition by British artist Jason deCaires Taylor. It’s sure to provide divers with the chance to enjoy some blissful solitude from the hustle and bustle of life in Cannes. Picture it, just the calming sounds of the ocean drowning out the noise, with these beautiful statues to gaze upon.

Each sculpture weighs a healthy ten tons, and stand tall at six foot. They are said to portray six people local to the area, including an entrepreneur, a curator, schoolchildren and even an 80-year-old fisherman!
