Canadian sculptor Simon Morris, creator of “Amphitrite” the 3 meter tall bronze mermaid at Sunset House and the more recent 4 meter “Guardian of the Reef” half man-half seahorse at Divetech, both in Grand Cayman, is now seeking a home for the last available casting of the Guardian somewhere in the Mediterranean.
The Guardian is a global limited edition of just four castings, all destined to be placed underwater in carefully chosen locations in the world’s oceans. The statue will raise awareness of the fragile nature of the marine environment around the world.
Simon has also released scaled Limited Editions of the Guardian of the Reef and offers a percentage of the sale proceeds to environmental groups focussing on the study and care of Seahorses.
The placement of Simon’s underwater sculpture has had a very successful track record in increasing diving tourism to specific locations, and now the opportunity exists to place a sculpture underwater to promote tourism and help an endangered species somewhere in the Med.
