Two men, two completely different worlds, one professional diver, another artist and one idea, one goal - WAY OF THE CROSS under the sea.
The art recognizes numerous and various forms of presentation of the Way of the Cross, either through different painting techniques, sculptures, music, literature, but no one has ever done anything like this. Never before had anyone presented or realized the idea of setting the Stations of the Cross under the sea.
The project that is planned to be realized as such is not known anywhere in the world. It is planned to set up the entire Way of the Cross, all the 14 Stations of the Cross. 50 concrete life-size figures will be laid on the seabed.
Looking for a location for placing the entire underwater story, a small bay near Trogir, bay Jelinak proved to be a perfect spot. Bay Jelinak belongs to the municipality of Marina, which has readily accepted our idea and thus enriched and expanded its tourist offer. We are confident that the project is very important for the entire region and will greatly contribute to the tourism industry.
The 1st Station of the Cross, Pilate condemns Jesus to die, has already been completed and after the exhibition on Trogir waterfront (riva) will be set to a location under the sea. Diving and sightseeing will be possible right after the installation. We plan to complete the whole story by the end of 2017. The Stations of the Cross will be placed at a depth of 10 meters. In this way, diving will be adapted to all, as to the experienced divers, as well as to the very beginners, to those who have never before experienced the stunning landscapes of the sea depths.
We cordially invite you to join us in the adventure of this unique underwater story!
