This Statues are made of a environmentally-friendly concrete that would not effect the marine ecosystem, Taking up an area of 50×50 meters, some of the Lanzarote sculptures represent local residents and recreate scenes from their every day life there, sitting idly in front on their TV sets or taking selfies, photo-bombed by the fish swimming past.
