Heart Strings

Under most circumstances, nature will destroy anything man made over time. But artist Jason De Caires creates beautiful underwater sculptural pieces which are strengthened by the coral, algae, and marine life that grow on them.
These pieces are created on land, transported by boat, and carefully submerged into shallow areas of water that can be viewed by snorkeling. Larger works (like the one shown above) are made in pieces and are bolted to the ocean floor.
We caught a very interesting interview with De Caires at Don’t Panic(, and if you like these pics as much as we do it’s definitely worth a read.
