Pathfinder’s Place in Pomponio

When I was in Pomponio recently, I took a look at the old volcano to see if the lava was back. Not only was the lava *not* back but the obviously nutrient rich soil left in cladera has allowed a strange little tree to flourish next to a huge leaf…

I went into the ever-steaming basin for a closer look – it seems that the area now belongs to Pathfinder Linden who uses it as a meeting and/or training venue. The leaf is a neat little seat (love the dew drop) and the tree drops tasty fruit every few seconds:

Over the rim of the old smoker, it seems Pathy has built himself quite a sculpture park with an amazing creation by the ever-Rezzable Bryn Oh.

The whole thing is a giant musical box and the haunting music is rather lovely I have to say – there are so many details to look at and I don’t want to ruin it for you, but suffice to say that installations like these are at the high-end of artistry in SL and awes me everytime. Get over there and see it for yourself 🙂

EDIT (17th March 2010): Since visiting the site and then writing this post some weeks (if not months) ago, Pathfinder Linden has left Linden Lab and is now Pathfinder Lester.

  1. Neat! It’s great to see Linden Lab folk with their own, personalized plots of land. It’s a hopeful sign when they get out and actually use their creation.

    (I assume that Lindens all find it easier to do so using alts, as that surname tends to attract attention, not all of it wanted. 🙂 )

    1. Yeah, it does sort of humanise them. I guess it was different in the early days when the Lindens would have been more visible and building the world right along with the Residents, but these days the nearest we get to that are the Moles in Michael Linden’s rather wonderful LDPW 🙂

  2. Really good ,I love Bryns work I saw a bit of it at BL09 and just recently at the linden village but at 1547 prims I’d say it was definitely the high end of SL art. Where I come from every prim is precious. I hear in times past you had to pay for every prim you rezzed, these kids don’t know they’re born 🙂
