Picture of the Day: The Monty Python Parrot
Sculptor Iain Prendergast created this 50 ft (15 m) parrot from the famous Monty Python sketch, the Dead Parrot (embedded below). The bird was placed in London’s Potters Field Park last July to promote the 10-day Monty Python reunion charity event, whose final night performance was aired on UKTV channel Gold, which commissioned the parrot.
For those unfamiliar with the popular sketch be sure to watch it below. It was from Monty Python’s Flying Circus Season 1 – Episode 08 (recorded 25-11-69, aired 07-12-69). For more pictures of the giant parrot, check out this Flickr album.
