What is a landmark?  It may be something built by human hands, or be something that exists in nature.  It often connotes the idea of place, of a direction or a turning point.  It could be a totem, a flag, or a magic symbol marking a liminal threshold.  It could be a mark on the ground or on a wall, or it could be a tall structure.  It could be a memorial or a monument.  Landmarks can also be understood in terms of time; a moment between one period and another, or historically between one people and another.  It can be seen as a sign of the times, a moment of crisis or change such as a “landmark decision” or “landmark legislation”.  Landmarks are everywhere in our world and in our language.
