Monument to Jacques Cousteau in Ubatuba, SP Brasil with humpback whale skeleton in background
This statue was submerged on Anchieta Island by 200 divers gathered by the Association of Diving Operators of Ubatuba in 1997, the year of his death. After 20 years, in 2017, the monument in honor of the oceanographer was removed from the bottom of the sea to be restored. Due to the action of the sea, part of the feature was unrecognizable. From there, the sculptor Fábio Souza carried out the restoration process, under the curatorship of Francisco Rosa, leaving half preserved and the other part restored.
