christ-of-the-abyss

The original ‘Christ Of The Abyss’ is at the bottom of the sea in the Bay of San Fruttuoso, in Northern Italy. The bronze sculpture is mere than 15 meters below the sea level.
In 1954, 22 August the Italian diver Duilio Marcante placed the sculpture in honor of his friend Dario Gonzatti, who died during a dive in 1947.
The sculpture is about 2,5 meters tall and weighs 260 kg (without foundation).
It was made by the sculptor Guido Galetti.
When Duilio died they placed a plaque at the base of the sculpture in his memory. He died on 8 November 1985.

There are many different versions of ‘The Christ Of The Abyss’, but this is the original and the first of its kind (that we know of).
There are many who confuse the one in Italy with a similar sculpture near Malta.
It is at the bottom of the Mediterranean near the coast of Malta.
It is 3 meters tall and weighs about 13 tons.
A sculptor from Malta, Alfred Camilleri Cauchi, made the sculpture because of the visit from the Pope John Paul II in 1990.
When the Pope had blessed the sculpture it was placed on the seabed close to St. Paul’s Island.
It has since been an attraction for divers

The Daily Mail Has Written RPF

Attention all Shipmates! 

Forgive us if you will. We have a rule aboard the ship that RPF is banned from coming aboard (we might be trash, but we have standards…some), however, in light of recent events, we’ve been made aware that The Daily Mail has written RPF (not really RPF if it really happened, right?) about our Captains, and we felt the need to share it with you all. It tells a nice story about our Captains and even comes complete with pictures… How nice of the Daily Mail to introduce their work into the fandom.  


Her character DSI Stella Gibson often goes for a dip in the pool when she is feeling stressed.

And Gillian Anderson looked very relaxed as she swam in the Mediterranean sea on a romantic boat trip with her boyfriend Peter Morgan in Portofino, Italy.

The star of The Fall, 48, showed off her washboard abs in the olive green and pink swimwear as she enjoyed the balmy climes of the Italian Riviera.  

Her bottoms had a similar cut and were tied together at the sides by matching lengths of pink string as she watched the world go by on her romantic boat trip.

The actress took a dip in the sea with her boyfriend Peter Morgan and sat cross-legged on the side of the boat as they took in the picturesque views

The X-Files star also caught the rays as she enjoyed a boat trip with her beau. The blonde beauty protected herself from the sun with a floppy straw hat and circular sunglasses. The couple perched on the very edge of the boat and chatted as they took in their picturesque surroundings in the north of Italy.

Gillian entered the water in a graceful arc as she took part in her character Stella Gibson’s favourite hobby. 

Gillian’s boyfriend Peter sat in the front seat of the boat as the actress peered at her phone and lounged on a beach towel. Gillian cooled down by lowering herself slowly into the water, as Peter watched on.  

The couple later sat in the main body of the boat and relaxed on top of deep blue beach towels and cushions. When she got on and left the boat, Gillian covered her bikini with a stylish striped halter dress. The simple blue dress brushed the actress’s knees and proved easy to take off when she got ready for her swim. Gillian, who was taking some much needed time out from her hectic schedule, cooled down by lowering herself slowly into the water, as Peter sat on the edge of their boat.

Gillian enjoyed the company of her playwright boyfriend as they sat on a boat by the Portofino cliff face. The couple watched a group of swimmers pass by as they were taken on a boat trip on the Italian Riviera. Gillian leaned back to take a photograph of the view from the boat as the pair laughed and joked on holiday.

The contented couple stretched out as they took a romantic boat trip to see Christ of the Abyss, a statue of Jesus which is found underwater.

As the couple mounted the steps to a restaurant, Gillian stopped to take a picture of writer Peter.

After their boat trip, the pair ate lunch at a restaurant on the cliff face, which looked out towards the sea.


The pair sat and ate lunch as the actress’s wet hair dried after her dip in the Mediterranean sea. Gillian smiled at Peter as the pair chatted among bunches of flowers as they waited for their food. The playwright and creator of The Crown strained as he captured the perfect shot of Gillian enjoying her meal.

The End
