This project was done to signify and remind people of the tragic X-Press Pearl Maritime Disaster. This was only one part of a five part Ocean creature project. All of which signifies the plastic pellet and other debris what destroyed the western shores of Sri Lanka and affected the fishery industry for half a year when Sri Lanka was already going through a tough time with covid expenses.
