Last year, Liverpool was European Capital of Culture which led to many events around the city of an artistic or cultural nature. One of the most visible of these was a massive public art exhibition, where ‘sculptures’ called Superlambana were given a myriad of different makeovers and went on display throughout the city. Most of these have now been removed, but we did see several during our day there recently. Here’s one of the simpler makeovers, which I found in a shop window. This has been decorated with examples of the Scouse dialect, the native tongue of Liverpudlians!
Bath did something similar last year, but with pigs. I think this kind of thing is a lot of fun and in the case of the Bath pigs it also raised a lot of money for charity as the pigs were auctioned off at the end of their residence.
