The statue of "Christ of the Abyss" is located at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo. The bronze statue was placed in 1965 in shallow water making it visible to snorkelers and scuba divers. "Florida is a great state for underwater photography, because of the natural reefs and clear water which surrounds us," says Jere.
