Today we love to know that art continues to arrive in Cancun, as a new series of statues arrived at the Underwater Museum of Art MUSA.
On June 7, 14 new sculptures were transported to the Fonatur roundabout, some of them will remain in that place to be observed on land, while the rest will be sunk to create a new area in the MUSA, the place is a surprise for what we are eager to know the new room that they are about to unveil.
This colossal batch of statues weighs more than 30 tons and includes the 6 giant hands of ‘Blessings’ that as we have discussed previously represent the blessings that Cancun has to offer the world.
The materials in which each of the statues are made are special, helping to promote marine life.
The investment was of more than half a million pesos to bring these new attractions to the museum.
Two new top attractions at the MUSA
Blessings is one of the main points of interest in this new series of sculptures, but there is another work that will also steal the attention of locals and strangers.
Reposo by Elier Amado Gil is also a beautiful attraction for the Underwater Museum of Art, its total weight is 8 tons full of materials that will reinforce the creation of artificial reefs, this work of art measures about 1.80 x 3 meters .
Amado Gil’s work is a representation of self-evaluation, since he wishes to explore the human will to promote the introspection of the human being. This piece suggests and invites meditation and silence.
