The famous red patch on the Jupiter Rock first mentioned in this post. This is in the general location where Mossman actor Gene Fade was born and raised before his move to nearby Notherton, once a city of some importance to the Mossman culture.
Some pictures, then, of the what could be called the Notherton “ruins”. I let Gene explain (in my head no less!) what all this was about.
The picture below is of what remains of the center of this “city”, explains Gene Fade, a complex of what he called open floor buildings, somewhat in the style of the Gallery at the Temple of TILE. Interesting comparison. He says upon further reflection that, yes, the buildings would make up, in toto, about the same amount of space as the old Ubertemple on Azure Islands.
Also in this old central region of Notherton are a considerable number of these ridged metal slices. Fade explains they are material for aerial walkways, now in disrepair. I didn’t ask Gene at the time, but I wondered, then, why many of them appeared to be grouped in piles, as if someone had organized the slices in the meantime.
This is what I’m calling the “Lost Jar”, referring to the fact that when I first stumbled upon the location of Notherton, I, baker b., found this particular jar and became fascinated by the inner microcosm of plants. However, upon setting it aside and looking around the immediate area some more, I was then unable to relocate where I had placed it. I looked and looked and looked: no luck. Yet when I returned there just today to take pictures, there it was on the ground in an obvious walking spot, plain as day.
I may have more to say about “Lost Jar”, the microcosm, in the near future.
More artifacts from the Notherton ruins.
Then a short distance away through the woods, I found this quite queer group of 5 trees, arranged in almost a perfect pentagonal pattern. Gene Fade explained to me that, indeed, within and between these carefully shaped and sized trees use to be a huge — to them — treehouse structure composed as well of a number of open floors, as was the general style of Mossman builds. Fade also explains to me that this would kind of be the equivalent to what we call a suburban mall, on the outskirts of Notherton and a popular shopping destination. In fact, Fade admitted to me that he had a cap outlet on the second level of this building.*
A look up from the ground through the center of the 5 trees, and where Fade claims the pentagonal treehouse mall use to be positioned.
* Also in the earlier post, Gene Fade explains that he use to own a business he called a cappery, which produced what we might call baseball-type caps
