War memorial detail

0707 Hyde Park memorial detail
Originally uploaded by rooruu.
This is a detail from the ANZAC war memorial in Hyde Park, Sydney. It's a building that does exactly what it aims to, giving you silence and space in which to consider those who died that you might stand as you do today. The marble work is wonderfully detailed, such as this example around the circular balcony - you look down on a sculpture of the supreme sacrifice.
