Marine rubbish picked up by the crew of PUMA’s Mar Mostro during Leg 1 has been added to the Skeleton Sea sculpture created from Cape Town beach trash.
The artists from Skeleton Sea have been working with local youngsters to create a piece of art made from junk collected from a beach clean at Mouille Point, part of the Volvo Ocean Race’s campaign to Keep the Oceans Clean!
And now a piece of rope and netting snared by PUMA’s keel in the South Atlantic has been added to the sculpture, which will go on display in Cape Town’s Aquarium.
The sculpture is an underwater scene featuring turtles, penguins, crabs and lobsters all made from rubbish.
The sculpture will be on show at the Two Oceans Aquarium in their section dedicated to plastics found in the oceans.
