Environmentalists in Indonesia, keen to send a message about the growing crisis over the disposal of plastic waste in the world's oceans, have created a museum made entirely of plastic to persuade people to rethink their habits and reject single-use bags and bottles.
The open-air exhibition in Gresik, East Java, took three months and consisted of more than 100,000 pieces of plastic waste, all collected from polluted rivers and beaches.
The main piece in the museum is a statue of the goddess of prosperity "Dewi Sri" among the inhabitants of Java. Her long skirt was made of disposable bags for household items.
The plastic problem is particularly acute in Indonesia, which ranks second after China in terms of the volume of plastic dumped into the seas.
