The Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable is an incredible, renowned masterpiece and the single most expensive contemporary art show in the world. The underwater treasures are a collection of, (collectively weighing 460 tons) of 189 statues and vessels, excavated from the greatest depths of the Indian Ocean (in 2008). The exhibition’s largest sculpture towers over 60 feet tall, so it’s not much of a surprise the masterpiece spans over two whole venues and blankets 54,000 feet of gallery space.
British legend, Damien Hurst, is the featuring artist and proud creator of this glorious marine masterpiece. Costing him £50 million, this was Hurst’s first major show in 13 years, and it took him and his team 10 years to complete.
