‘Nest’

Located off the northwest coast of Lombok in Indonesia are the three Gili Islands: Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan. These islands are renowned for their sandy white beaches, swaying palm trees and pristine waters. They are home to a booming green sea turtle population, and in recent years the islands have become the focus for sustainable, eco-friendly tourism attractions both on shore and underwater. 

One of the most beautiful attractions is a project called “Nest,” which was created and installed by British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor in 2017. Located just off the shore of Gili Meno, the smallest of the three islands, the underwater sculpture park features 48 life-sized statues based on the casts of real people. The statues, meant to symbolize the continuity of life, are arranged in a circle, with couples embracing and figures lying down. A few feet away lies another installation featuring three women lying down on their sides.
