    Saw a brand new one today, as far as I'm aware, in the 08 Place. It is a sort of metaliic blue/purple/greeny colour which changes colour depending what light you catch it under. No number as far as I'm aware, standing where superwool was standing last week

    Here's the link to the 70 being auctioned:
    Go SuperLambBananas!
    which will presumably be the same 70 on display at St George's Plateau on 8th and 9th Sept.

    My aunt went to Matchworks today and they still haven't finished working on that one.

    They've been promising that one for weeks - he's kind of late but apparently when he does arrive he'll be permanent. I think my aunt had the manager in a headlock or something when she went there for the 3rd time!!!

    For those who "Hate " the artwork of the Lambanana..

    It was written: The piece of art is to represent What could happen to Mother Nature if ,WE (humans), continue to alter genetically , what Mother Nature has given to us.. Nature has given us superb life in a form of a banana and creatures like a lamb.. and if Scientists continue to try and alter creatures and the food source.. Who knows what may develope? A weird creature as the lambanana... That is what it represents...

    I particularly liked viewing them, placed amongest the gray areas of concrete. If it gives the young people better solutions to the problems of global warming and using better means for food sources (cleaning up the soil) etc.. it is a good piece of art.. I liked them.. Liked the colored cows in Scotland and even some in Colorado.. If it gets any recognition.. it is better than NONE.. Art is in the eye of the beholder.. and at least someone is trying to keep Art and awareness alive...

    My little girl is fascinated with them. They are everywhere, all over the city right into the suburbs.

    I will have to get her a little lambanana.

    Superlamb that?s all wired up
    Sep 5 2008
    by Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo



    THE biggest Superlambanana of the year has set up home in Liverpool.

    The Urbananasplash was revealed at the Matchbox, in Garston, yesterday.

    Sculptor Julian Taylor, who created the original Superlambanana, worked for several months on the new ?lamby?.

    It took almost 600 hours and 200m of materials to create the mammoth structure, which stands more than 12ft high.

    The sculpture, commissioned by developer Urban Splash, is the final model in this year?s Superlambanana trail.

    It permanently reside at the Speke Road site, where Taro Chieso?s original was built in 1998.

    Mr Taylor said: ?It is also a fitting end to the Superlambanana trail.?

    For more details, go to www.gosuperlambananas.co.uk

    Hundreds of families on St Georges plateau this evening enjoying one last banana-thon. Judging by the number of fancy cameras present there should be lots of new piccies on their way... even local BBC TV news were mingling.

    hubby and I went there today "for 10 mins" on the way to hospital. an hour later we left . we also bumped into my grand daughter and a family friend who were on the security there. they said it had been busy all day.

    I took a few pics including the beautifully restored Peek-A-Boo , so I did get to visit all 126 in the end.

    will upload a couple of pics later.

    They should sell the lambananas to musicians who buy anything from Crowley stuff to something Lennon sneezed on.

    As only a visitor to Liverpool a few times this year I honestly never liked the lamb bananas but to see them together is something different.

    Excellent photographs.

    I beleive they raised about half a million from the auction. Thats good news surely?

    Any idea where that money will go, via the Lord Mayors fund?

    Apparently Phil Redmond paid ?25,000 for one of the lambs Still it is all for charity so someone will benefit from all the money raised. That can only be a good thing surely?
