Wow, could you imagine scuba diving and coming across that! It would scare the daylights out of me-- at first, but it's so cool.

Spooky. Real spooky.
LERVE this.

Galit said...

Wow.
This is beautiful and mesmerizing and disturbing all at the same time. I reckon that's what good art is about. It really touches you in a way and make you move in your chair and think. So interesting.
