It took three years for the artist to create Musan, which launch was scheduled for last year, but was delayed due to the pandemic. He started to work on the project in Cyprus last spring but underwent a lot of difficulties such as shifting flights, creating materials, and transportation in general. Jason deCaires Taylor shared that it was one of the most challenging projects throughout his career.
