Public Copper Scuba Art in Cozumel
Mexico

    This is one of the most popular pieces of public art - a copper/brass sculpture representing what Cozumel island paradise is most famous for - its SCUBA diving and snorkelling coral reefs. On the left is a woman diver and on the right is a man diving. They are surrounded by coral reef fish with an abundancy of sea life. The entire sculpture is surrounded by a fountain in the shape of a starfish.

     This sculpture also has a fountain whose water not only shoots up from the bottom but also from around the divers and out of the arch on top. It is very impressive when "on". Usually it is "off" in order to conserve the sculpture as it would otherwise oxidize and not last long.

     Every place you would want to eat or shop is within a walking distance from the ferry port which is a 2 minutes walk from this statue. The ferry drops you off hourly in the middle of the island. The nice beaches are a little further to the North, South and to the East and would require a cab or rent a car.

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
