Giant Dead Parrot Sculpture Celebrates Monty Python

British television channel 
Gold has installed a 49-foot-tall, flberglass parrot (Norwegian Blue, no doubt) to commemorate the forthcoming broadcast of the “Monty Python Live (mostly)” farewell show. The parrot is from one of the most popular Monty Python sketches in history, as shown in the video below. 

The statue, resting peacefully in
Potter’s Field Park near the tower bridge in London, took three sculptors two months to construct. The parrot will be moved to 02 Arena for the final Monty Python live show. The performance by remaining Python members John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones will be presented on July 20th, 2014.
