Our Arbiter Abroad, Lauren, brings us two more choice photographs from Australia today. One is of a small creek in the Healesville Sanctuary; the second is a poignant visual essay on the imprisonment of the spirit in contemporary—OK, fine, we’re not sure what it is, exactly. Some kind of wombat, perhaps? A bandicoot—does that sound right? All we know is that it’s got clawed hands, eyes as blue as Sinatra’s, and an expression of tragic dignity. Maybe it’s the same species as the thing that washed up on Montauk recently. We’ll ask Lauren when she returns; until then, feast your eyes!
