Superlambanana - Liverpool, England.

Created by Japenese artist Tar Chiezo, it was constructed in 2008 to celebrate Liverpool's European Capital of Culture status. It comments on the dangers of genetic engineering, using the lamb and banana (which were both common cargo at one point at Liverpool's docks), and also plays on Liverpool's famous sense of humour.

The 17ft model currently stands on Tithebarn street in the city centre.

There were also more than 150 smaller sculptures scattered throughout the North West, one in London Euston train station, and one on a mountain in Wales.
