This amazing sculptural installation is the work of Jason de Caires Taylor and is located in MUSA an underwater museum off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. Comprised of 400 life-size human figures carved in cement, the figures function not merely as a work of art, but as a habitat for various ocean wildlife, such as coral.
Very eerie - and a work of sheer genius.
When I saw this I immediately thought of Mac... various sculptures, often of the human form, frequently fell under his camera lens. He'd have a field day in MUSA!
A video clip of the artist talking about his work with more views of "The Silent Evolution" can be found here.
(Another hat-tip to BoingBoing!)
Postscript: Actually, in a very weird way, this installation reminds me of Roy Batty and "tears in rain"... only instead of a dove flying away, there's a magnificent manta-ray.
