The World of Oceans
From simply-built sponges and corals to highly-specialized sharks and whales, this exhibit showcases an incredible variety of sea creatures. Bioluminescent deep-sea fishes, giant mussels, and the enormous mouth of an extinct shark awaken a fascination for this underwater world that is still largely unknown today.
Controversial themes are also explored: the great white shark is seen as the archetype of the aggressive, merciless killer who doesn’t even hesitate to attack humans. This image created by the media still persists in our imagination, and has brought this sensitive sea dweller to the brink of extinction.
