From legend to reef – a new development in Langkawi

The idea for this sculpture comes from a famous legend of Langkawi – The Legend of Mahsuri.

From Legend to Reef
From Legend to Reef

Mahsuri, a beautiful woman, married to warrior Wan Darus was framed for adultery and sentenced to death. In her grief, Mahsuri cursed that her blood would run white as proof of her innocence and that seven generations of bad luck would fall upon Langkawi.

From Legend to Reef

As told it happened, signifying her innocence. The crown of Mahsuri is seen floating on the seabed as of in contemplation. The seven generations curse has been lifted and the island of Langkawi is prospering once more. The sculpture is made of high-density, pH-neutral, marine quality cement, which can be preserved for hundreds of years.

From Legend to Reef

This sculpture installation will soon be placed in the Langkawi waters. The sculpture is designed to promote coral reef growth, regeneration, and expansion of fish, crustaceans, and other marine life. The fun is utilising the sculpture to guide them in a certain direction, allowing the final result to demonstrate the beauty of coral over a man-made sculpture.
