The lambanana is the creation of Japanese artist Taro Chiezo. While the original statue of the lambanana was only 4 inches tall, a gigantic 17 foot bright yellow version was installed in Liverpool. The statue is a cross between a lamb and banana and recognises the dangers of genetic engineering as well as pays homage to Liverpool’s role as a major trading port for lamb and fruits such as the banana.
The following picture is of the Mandela superlambanana at the Museum of Liverpool that commemorates the life and achievements of the great statesman.
