Gumbo's Pic of the Day, June 11, 2014: At the Australian Embassy, DC


Washington is a city with many embassies and international organizations, decked out with flags and formal coats of arms. But Australia has a reputation for casualness, and this free-form version of the Australian seal caught our attention. It's by Tom Bass, one of Australia's best-known sculptors, noted especially for expressing ideas, rather than individuals, in his work.

thanks for the pic PH. Nice to see the Aussie coat of arms in other parts of the world. You're right about the reputation for casualness too. We don't take anything too seriously and have a "she'll be right" attitude about life.

The journey starts with you. Just open that door and start walking!
