7 reviews of Superlambanana in English
The superlambanana has provided liverpool with an unforgettable landmark. They can be found dotted all around the city and really added something special to the city of culture. Souviners of the lambanana can be found in all shapes and sizes from mini replicas to sterling silver necklaces.
I’ve never taken much notice of the superlambanana and it’s relevence to Liverpool but my sister was really excited when the 'trail’ of them popped up during the summer and the maps showing their whereabouts was available. Her enthusiasm was catching and i soon found myself a fully fledged superlambanana spotter! They are actually really interesting as each one has it’s own identity and relevence to Liverpool and our culture. They are also fab works of art in their own right. I havn’t looked in a while, but the website had a great map with each one on it and when you rolled the mouse over them a large picture with the superlambanana’s name came up and you could click on it to read more about it. My eldest daughter spent hours looking at them all!
When the superlambanana first appeared on the scene I just couldn’t see the point of it, it just seemed like a daft piece of sculpture. However over 08 I have grown to love them all so much so it’s so nice to see that the original is still around. They are just fun, from the footnball ones to the beautifully decorated. i just think that they are so synonomous with Liverpool now that we’ll always be remembered for them. They are just great for novelty value. I am sure there is some deep and meaningful reason behind them, but to me they’re just fun, cute and great to look at!
The sculpture has shifted all over the place over the years, but now sits outside the library for John Moore’s University. It’s quite a large, imposing structure which has been painted several different colours to match its movement around the city centre.
I like the concept and the work itself. Symbolising the imports and exports into the famous docks, the two goods of bananas and lamb are fused together to give a new poignant modern meaning - genetic engineering.
Worth going to see if you are doing a whistle-stop tour of Liverpool, although there is not much else there, it is worth the trip alone for its notoriety.
To be honest, I didn’t think I was going to be impressed with this at first. Then when I went to see it I was actually really amused by it! It is a great work of art, and it is fascinating seeing different Superlambanana’s dotted around the city! Taking pictures with each one you see is a super fun way to make time pass.
The Super Lamb Banana was the original work of Japanese-based artist Taro Chiezo
These are just fab, my daughter loved lambanana spotting, they were so well done.We didnt go one the lambanana tour but we did travel around in the city centre to see how many we could see. Now they are gone my daughter still ask about them when we go into town.
Super Lamb Banana is a great example of modern art that has brought the city together with a huge element of fun. It was a huge shame to see them go but am glad they came.
