The Musician

Location (see map): Musha Cay, Exumas, Bahamas
Depth: 4m
Installation Date: 2011

The Musician is a stand alone sculpture that includes a full-scale mermaid and Steinway concert grand piano replica. It is hidden underwater for snorkelers to discover near a private island owned by the illusionist David Copperfield. The piano plays soft classical music, similar to the sound of a whale or dolphin, as divers approach, and was constructed using 316 stainless steel. The mermaid, waiting to play, is made from pH neutral cement to encourage marine growth.
