Canberra - Final Fantasy Save Crystal on Rudd Street

Not so long ago this blue thingie suddenly popped up on the corner of Moore and Rudd Sts in Civic. My immediate impression was that it looked like a giant version of a blue save crystal from Final Fantasy XII - you know, a device you can touch and then it will allow you to save your game so that you can return back to the saved state if you screw up ahead in the game. A real handy thing to have in real life, too! If only.

I'm sure the ACT Government didn't have a save crystal in mind (though I'm sure it wishes it could do with one) when this was commissioned - OK, a little research reveals that it's called Blue Sky Shard by Jon Tarry. There's a similar one in purple erected on the opposite side of the intersection (completely blocked from view in this photo unfortunately). Would have been nice if the other one had been orange, since FFXII had the orange crystals too.

This is an overview of Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria.

We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in!

Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth.

The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party.

This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality.

The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself!
