The Beatles Sculpture at Liverpool's Pier Head
The Beatles, "Walking In The Rain".
Beatles sculpture by Andrew Edwards, Pier Head., Liverpool.
The bronze sculpture, which weighs 1.2 tonnes, was donated to the city by the Cavern Club. The bronze was sculpted by Andrew Edwards and depicts the band walking toward the river Mersey and reflects a real photo shoot.
The idea for the statue came from Chris Butler, managing director of Castle Fine Art Foundry Ltd, which has a studio in the city.
"This is a statue that needs no title, no explanation, no instruments, no gimmicks," he said of the piece inspired by the 1963 photo shoot. "It's a monument to a moment and the moment started in Liverpool."
