La Machine’s La Princesse awakens in Liverpool

Nothing like a 13 metre high mechanical spider walking through the streets to get you blogging.

Elizabeth and I trained our way up to Liverpool last night to check out La Machine’s latest creation that was commissioned as part of Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture.

The pics and the videos speak for themselves, but so, so very cool and nothing like you can imagine. It reminded me of a toy I had as a child –Spydor from the He Man Series (thanks to Toy Archive for the image).
