Description

My fascination for nature and sea life in particular never stops surprising me. Since I was a kid I have been amused by its mysteries and wonders, still today, I find myself continuously astonished when learning about them. Ocean's represent 90% of the Earth's biosphere but still, we know more about the Moon than the ocean, we only have explored between 5-7% of our oceans, which begs the question: How many sea life species remain unknown to us? Manta Rays are spectacular beings that despite continuous research and studies done, keep holding many secrets and mysteries the answers to which will enrich the understanding of our environment. This was the concept I was pursuing when I started working on this sculpture, not only to represent this magnificent animal but also all the secrets behind it as well as having the intention to create awareness about sea life, the ecosystem and how it is being endangered.
