What’s 3.5 metres high and made out of ten London taxis? Big Bird of course! This new Lightpool feature is an exciting new addition to this year’s Lightpool Festival.
The 1 tonne pigeon was originally created for the Museum of London’s immersive experience Beasts of London, created in partnership with Guildhall School of Music & Drama, but it will spread its wings and head to Blackpool for Lightpool Festival.
This large-scale sculpture of a Trafalgar Square Pigeon (Columba livia domestica) is impressively constructed from parts of London Black Cabs (Hackney Carriage) finished in its natural plumage and aesthetically illuminated by Lightworks, the Blackpool Illuminations production team.
MDM Props in Greenwich, London were commissioned to build the sculpture
