This project was named ‘Nest’. What makes these statues more unique is, its made from the casts of real people. These statues symbolize life and continuity.
The main aim of ‘Nest’ was to act as an artificial reef, so that coral would grow over it, which would eventually lead fishes to swim around it and provide them food. With the concern of world coral reef dying rapidly ‘Nest’ was developed. ‘Nest’ is not only helping in providing a home to marine life like fishes and turtles but at the same time its attracting lots of tourists which automatically creates jobs for the locals. In the past few years, Gili Meno sculptures have attracted a huge number of divers and photographers.
