Monty Python Dead Parrot Sculpture in London

To celebrate the upcoming television broadcast of the “Monty Python Live (mostly)” farewell show, UKTV channel Gold installed a giant dead parrot sculpture (of the famed “Dead Parrot Sketch”) in Potter’s Field Park in London. The 49-foot sculpture was crafted from fiberglass over the course of two months by a team of three sculptors captained by artist Iain Prendergast. The parrot will be delivered to the 02 Arena for the final Monty Python live show later this week, which takes place July 20th, 2014.
