“‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! ‘E’s expired and gone to meet ‘is maker! ‘E’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘e rests in peace!”
This giant sculpture of a distcintly dead parrot has been installed by UKTV channel Gold in London’s Potter’s Field Park to celebrate the upcoming TV broadcast of the Monty Python’s final performance of their “Monty Python Live (mostly)” farewell show. The 49-foot-long fiberglass version of the “Norwegian Blue” from Monty Python’s beloved “Dead Parrot Sketch" was created over a two month period by a team of three sculptors led by artist Iain Prendergast.
"If you hadn’t nailed ‘im to the perch ‘e’d be pushing up the daisies! ‘Is metabolic processes are now ‘istory! ‘E’s off the twig! "
Mister Polly Parrot will soon be installed outside the 02 Arena where the performance of “Monty Python Live (mostly)” is set to take place on Sunday July 20th, 2014. So you’d better start preparing your silliest walk straight away.
'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!”
