Wrecked.

This manufactured wreck of an early 1900's steamship, houses the viewing windows for all the aquarium tanks of uShaka Marine World.

188 workers, together with artists from the Alan Paton studio, spent many hours and much effort to make this wreck look authentic. Regular touch-ups are needed to keep this fibreglass, concrete and wooden structure looking like a lot of rusted metal.

I agree with the first post, this post is likable! ;)

From this shot, it does look legit. Can you tell that it isn't the real thing when looking at it in real life?

(I won't put "A hug", but I can give you a "thumbs up"!)

it looks really authentic.
is the Alan Paton studio an empowerment project?
