Aileron Man, on the road to Wycliffe Well (26 July, 2010)

Aileron, just north of Alice Springs, is the proud owner of a 17-metre high sculpture of an Aboriginal man which sits on a hill overlooking the town. It's based on a traditional man from the local Anmatjere tribe. The huge sculpture was made by Mark Egan (Ted Eagan’s son).  Down near the Art Centre and close by the Aileron Roadhouse, is Aileron man's wife and piccaninny. The sculptures are both anatomically correct, if you get my drift. I have also thrown in a few photos of the stunning cloud formations we saw on the way. The road to Wycliffe Well also crosses the Tropic of Capricorn; I have included photos of the two of us at the marker.
