Jason de Caires Taylor's 'Silent Evolution' in Cancun Mexico is finally complete, composed of 400 human sculptures nine meters below the ocean's surface. Each life-sized figure has a distinctly unique appearance with an extraordinary amount of details, leaving the viewer truly affected by these still submerged souls.

Made of concrete over fiberglass, Taylor's 'Silent Evolution' sculptures make up clusters and crowds of people, some clothed and some nude. The pH-neutral material attracts fish and other marine life, promoting the artist's intent of expressing the human connection to nature in his work.
