    this is what is says at his site: JASON DECAIRES TAYLOR’S ‘VICISSITUDES’ Vicissitudes depicts a circle of figures, all linked through holding hands. These are life-size casts taken from a group of children of diverse ethnic background. Circular in structure and located five meters below the surface, the work both withstands strong currents and replicates one of the primary geometric shapes, evoking ideas of unity and continuum.

There's another set of them in Cancun with a few shallow enough to snorkel on there too. The rest is for divers.

    I have been there! TWICE! Once in the snow like this! It is prettier on the outside. Only because the inside is incomplete. Oh and there is the big extended bridge on the way up that has breathtaking views. And the Bavarian Alps are breathtaking.
