Jason deCaires Taylor’s New Sculpture “Nest” Unveiled
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 31, 2017 @ 02:15 AM (EST)


The new work by underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor—called “Nest”—has been completed with the installation of the final figures. The sculptor describes the work thus: “‘Nest’ creates a new habitat space, a nucleus of protection and support. The circular formation evokes time and continuum, an echo of the circle of life.”

Now open to the public, the new sculpture, which is comprised of 48 life-size human figures, is situated near the island of Gili Meno, one of the three Gili Islands found between Bali and Lombok. It’s the first time that Taylor has situated a work in the Asia region; his sprawling masterpiece, “Museo Atlántico,” is located off the Spanish island of Lanzarote.

Commissioned by the luxury resort developer BASK, the new sculpture sits in just 13 feet of water, so it’s possible for snorkelers as well as divers to visit the installation.
