This amazing underwater sculpture in Grenada by artist Jason de Caires Taylor is called Vissicitudes. It has mistakingly been thought or assumed to identify with African slaves lost in the Middle Passages. This is most likely due to fact that most islands in the Carribean had a connection to the slave trade. However, the artist himself states this:

“It was never my intention to have any connection to the Middle Passages. Altough it was not my intention at the outset, I am very encouraged how it has resonated differently within various communities and feel it is working as an art piece by questioning our identity, history, and stimulating debate.”

The record has been set straight! Nonetheless, Taylor has created many breathtaking works of art and your can view them here. Enjoy!
