Go Superlambananas


As part of Liverpool's European Year of Culture 119 small Superlabananas have been created and spread around the city, with one making it as far as London. 96 sponsiors and 27 Community Groups have each arranged for them to be indiviually decorated. It is entertaining, walking around the city and seeing them as you turn a corner or enter a shop, and the number of people wandering around with location maps and cameras is just amazing. It certainly looks like these bizarre creatures have caught the imagination of the people of Liverpool. Unfortunately there are some who are against these little creatures, but I would love one for the garden.

They will be in place util mid August after which most will be auctioned off in aid of various charities.

More details may be found here and here.

There is a similar thing going on in Bath at the moment - the whole place is swarming with decorated pigs! Very entertaining - I like the Mona Lisa one.

They did that here with cows. I like your odd-looking animals better. Weird idea, but it is certainly fun to walk around and see what people have come up with.
Les Auld: And to watch peoples reactions to them, thanks for the comment Martin.
Great pictures Les and I really like the presentation in this collage.
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Brian I came across the idea on the Web a few years ago and was waiting for a suitable subject to present itself.

Always amazing how easily (it seems to me) you devise these super collages. Excellent and I like superlambananas - especially Koppy.
Les Auld: Not original I'm afraid Louis, thanks for the comment.
