ABC Wednesday - Lambanana

This week for the letter L who is strolling in but the Lambananas of Liverpool.  These are the 'miniatures' located by the Museum of Liverpool, this one looking towards the iconic Liver Building.  The original Lambanana is a bright yellow 17 foot high Superlambanana, a cross between a lamb and a banana created by the artist Taro Chiezo, a comment about the the possible dangers of genetic engineering and the history of Liverpool trade.  In 2008 when Liverpool was European Capital of Culture 125 miniature replicas were created, placed all over the city and elsewhere in the UK.  I am not sure where they are now but currently three are at the pier head,  all on different themes, this maritime and
 this I think are nautical flags but your guess is as good as mine. The next is more certain
the music of Liverpool so as we are on the pier head and I have spotted the hair cut on the front, what says the 1980s more than A Flock of Seagulls

An entry to ABC Wednesday, a journey through the alphabet.

I LOVE public art! Especially things like this-so creative and imaginative. A lamb and a banana. Would would've thought to put those two together??
