Today’s jigsaw is out third and final picture of the RMS Titanic because it was in the early hours of April 15th, 2012, that the Titanic sank after its fateful collision with the iceberg.
This image, captured by Wildstar Beaumont, shows the oldest of the Titanic builds, and perhaps the best known – the Titanic (on the Titanic sim) in Second Life. Behind the ship you can see the Memorial, where the names of all those known to have been lost are inscribed, and here today, at 12 noon SLT, there will be a special ceremony to commemorate the loss. This is, in fact, held annually, but this year of course will have a special significance.
There’s more information about this re-creation of the Titanic (and the Memorial) on the recent Designing Worlds show about different reconstructions of the Titanic in virtual worlds – which also contains a wealth of facts and stories about the fated first voyage of the Titanic.
Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).
If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.
