A 20-tonne spider that swung from a city centre tower block over commuters is to make its way across the city as part of a show.
Francois Delarozière created the mechanical artwork for La Machine show, which ends on Sunday. The Northwest Regional Development Agency and the Liverpool Culture Company have commissioned the work and show for £250,000.
The steel and wood spider is 65ft (20m) wide and 50ft tall and has 50 axes of movement. It is operated by 12 people strapped to its frame. It starts to crawl across the city from 11am tomorrow.
