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:
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.
