Superlambananas are back!

Those of your from or living in Liverpool will be familiar with the Superlambanas, the amazing half banana/half lamb sculptures that popped up in their dozens around the city last summer in various themes and colours as part of the Capital of Culture celebrations.

Each of the 125 unique, two metre high sculptures were modeled on the original and much larger Superlambanana created by Japanese artist Taro Chiezo that stands outside the LJMU Avril Robarts library on Tithebarn Street.

Each one of the replicas was auctioned off last September before it was announced in February that eight brand new sculptures would debut around the city this summer.

And low and behold, as I walked home yesterday, I came across this Union Jack effort outside 60 Hope Street restaurant on Hope Street and what a fine sight it was.
