Art Destroyed By Fanatics

The attack on me and cats by the Ugly McKimbo Tribe is typical of ignorant religious superstitious savages. Why did God demand innocent animals and birds be sacrificed? How cruel and Barbaric!


The sculptures, known as The Coralarium, were located a tidal reef within swimming distance of the Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi resort.

They had been created by British artist Jason DeCaires Taylor, who was crestfallen when hearing of their destruction. DeCaires Taylor said the statues had no religious meaning but simply sought to capture the human form and behavior.

I was extremely shocked and heartbroken to learn that my sculptures have been destroyed by the Maldivian authorities at the Coralarium, despite continued consultations and dialogue,” he told The Guardian. “The Coralarium was conceived to connect humans to the environment and a nurturing space for marine life to thrive.”

The installation was created with the goal of being both a tourist attraction and refuge for sea life. It was lit up at night by an illumination system.
