“Liver Bird” is a twelve-part series that brings the evocative avian symbol of Liverpool to visit the city’s most iconic structures and spaces. Following tradition dating back at least to the 17th century, I have based the Liver Bird on a cormorant grasping seaweed in its beak. I then broke with tradition - embracing Liverpool’s multicultural character, I loosely adopted an oriental style. Look carefully at the pseudo-oriental signature; what does it say? The red seal at the bottom of this script is my personal symbol, depicting a species of micro-organism (a protozoan) that I described.
