Cannes has won another tourist spot in addition to the beautiful beaches and the famous film festival: an underwater museum. Made by British artist Jason deCaires Taylor, the permanent exhibition at the Cannes Submerged Museum features a series of underground sculptures in the Mediterranean Sea.

Around the island of Sainte-Marguerite, six sculptures were submerged with the faces of Cannes residents, from children to the elderly. Made of cement, with neutral pH, the sculptures are two meters high, weigh more than ten tons and are textured to attract marine fauna and flora, such as Posidonia oceanica. “This type of seagrass is known as ‘the lungs of the world’, as it produces an incredible amount of oxygen,” the artist told the Architectural Digest.
