    That's not what that sculpture represents. You can read about this and the other sculptures here http://twistedsifter.com/20... This one is called Vicissitudes.

    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.

    I understand the thought behind this, but how many people are actually going to get to see this in person?

    Well the point of it is to create an artificial reef, to take the pressure off the natural reefs. This one is in Grenada and it's only in 5m of water, so pretty much anybody that can get in the water can see it. There's another set of them in Cancun with a few shallow enough to snorkel on there too. The rest is for divers.
