November 11 marks the end of four years of brutal conflict in which nearly 62,000 Australian's died fighting for our freedom and in service of our nation.
To commemorate The Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne has been lit up red between sunset and sunrise.
The following is the view of the Front of the Shrine of Remembrance from the Domain Rd direction.
The Symbolism of the northern tympanum represents a call to arms. it consists of a winged goddess (representing mother country – centre) calling her children to defend her. Two young warriors (either side) answer her call and kneel at her feet in homage and service. A poet sings songs of battle and wild beasts are held in leash for the upcoming struggle. A mother gathers her children (left), and an old man looks to the safety of the flock whilst he prepares the weapons of his youth (thanks to the guide for explaining!)
