For those who know who Ned Kelly was, the basic idea should be self-evident. For those who don't: Ned Kelly was an Australian bushranger (outlaw) in the 19th century who was famous for building an iron suit of armour and wearing it to a gunfight with the police. (In fact his whole gang wore similar
armour) The police eventually brought him down by shooting out his legs. [/history lesson]
Now, my idea is a giant statue of Ned Kelly on a coastal cliff somewhere, looking out to sea. At night a rotating light will shine forth from the eye-slit in his helmet to serve as a lighthouse. I imagine the effect would look somewhat like a cylon's eye, except it wouldn't be red. You may ask why? Because it would look cool,that's why!
