This 18-foot, 60-ton sculpture, “Ocean Atlas” is the newest statue installation off Nassau in the Bahamas, where an underwater artificial reef trail is being built. It depicts a local Bahamian girl holding the surface of the sea on her shoulder in parody to the Greek sculpture of Titan Atlas, holding up the heavens. It’s also the largest (mostly) underwater statue in the world.
