Liverpool Personified

Siting high above William Brown street atop the Walker Art Gallery is an allegorial personification of Liverpool with a Liver bird at her side.

The current statue, rough hewn from a 42 ton block of marble in China and then finished by Chinese craftsmen on site in Liverpool, replaced the oringinal, dating from 1877, in 1998. The original had been ravaged by atmosheric polution and weather and is now displayed inthe Liverpool Museums Conservation Centre.

The gulls obviously find it a comfortable roosting place. This is a great Shot Les. I visited the conservation center for the first time a month or so ago. Interesting place.
