Commissioned by: Help University College & Dragonet Diving for Project AWARE.
Corals are very sensitive and they take a long time to grow. However, even one accidental flap of a diver's fin can destroy it forever.
This worrying fact initiated a campaign to educate the public. Held by HELP University College, local dive centre, Dragonet Diving and Symbols House of Natural Art joined hands to make this campaign a success. The campaign was in conjunction with the marine conservation international project campaign named Aquatic World Awareness, Responsibility and Education (Aware).
The heart-shaped kolam depicting the marine life ecosystem like corals and sea creatures, designed by Symbols House of Natural Art's artist, Jeganathan Ramachandram reflected how a single touch or even an accidental swipe of the feet on the design could destroy the beautiful motives, a grim reminder that coral reefs suffer the same consequences as well.The kolam took about five hours to construct.
