Artist Jason deCaires Taylor’s Museo Atlantico, off Lanzarote, is peopled with concrete casts of refugees and people taking selfies.
 Drowned world: welcome to Europe’s first undersea sculpture museum. Here: The Raft of Lampedusa, 
Taylor’s modern-day concrete echo of Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa. The work has particular significance given
 the huge movement of refugees across the sea to Europe – and the frequent fatalities that result.
