In Civic this morning I noticed the fences around where the light-up cube used to be had gone and in the cube’s place was this quite nice sculpture.
It turns out this is the ACT Memorial for which money was allocated in the May budget. The glass ball in the centre looks like it may light up at night, and is sitting on a ring of lights with what I presume are meaningful words inscribed on them.
Embracing this ball are two metal lattices which reminded me of flames, particularly with their wavy tops. Apparently they represent the feathers of the dove of peace.
And finally, walking around the other side I discovered that this isn’t just any memorial, it’s a 21st century one — with its very own website!
