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.

The Royal Liver building (pronounced Laiver) is an iconic landmark on Liverpool pier. The two liver birds (one in the picture below) watch over the city and are fabled to bring luck to the city. This building was the tallest structure in the United Kingdom till 1961 and is one of the first buildings in the world to be built with reinforced concrete.
