Springing from the base of window 6 is another set of ribbons forming the boundaries of sky, land and sea. The strong vertical dust cloud columns of windows 2, 3 and 4 become more familiar horizontal layers of sky, land and sea by windows 10, 11 and her in window 12.
This window has Peninsular mountain ranges Altonmoui and Melville and Mt. Tozer. At sea-level the last lava flow peters out into the sea at Cape York itself, with some of the Torres Strait Islands offshore.
The creation of this landmass has provided a profile from south to north - of Tropical North Queensland - the Diocese of Cairns. The ocean begins at the bottom of window 6 and unfurls across the windows until it achieves its horizon line at the tip of Cape York in this window. This is the same horizon line as that of the Coral Sea in the "Peace Window".
As the windows progress this unfolding of life takes on ever more complex and stunningly beautiful shapes at the base of window after window, until by window 12, the reef and all its diverse life forms are completed. The reef ends by sharply falling off into a deep chasm leading the eye to the wrecks in the depths of the "Peace Window".
Dramatic tropical lightning strikes burn through windows 10 and 11, until by window Top 12, beyond the thunderhead, a typically clear blue Queensland sky appears. The thunderhead in window 12 formed by water vapour in the atmosphere deliberately evokes memories of the huge dust cloud columns in windows 2, 3 and 4.
