This exposition is amazing! Imagine, the most beautiful sea creatures from the Great Barrier Reef, all made now in crochet.  All this huge artwork have an ecologic reason: Global worming.  Do you know that many sea species, like coral, are dieing because of this?  If we don't stop this serious problem now, soon we will have to forget about this incredible submarine world.

  1. wow, that is interesting. It looks like it would take forever to make all that. You would have to be good and have fast fingers. Very beautiful and impressive.
