The Vicissitudes by Jason de Caires Taylor was installed in 2007 at the Moliniere Bay Sculpture Garden in Grenada, at a depth of 14 feet. It is Taylor’s most recognized work in the park, a ring of 26 standing children, holding hands and facing outwards into the current. The design took six months to make, weighed 4 tons in dry cement and was constructed to withstand strong currents and tidal motion. The ring symbolises the concept of life’s ongoing cycle and highlights the importance of creating a sustainable and well managed environment for future generations, holding reference to the ability of children adapt to their surroundings.
