The Black Pearl was made from items found on New Brighton beach by artist Frank Lund – there’s an interview and more background from Frank here.
The cool thing about the ship being at New Brighton is that it’s possible to get the Liverpool skyline in the background.
The Black Pearl was subject to an arson attack earlier in the year – I find it incredible that someone could do something so mindless.
Thankfully though the New Brighton community rallied round and rebuilt her. Definitely stop by for a visit if you’re in the area, well worth spending a few minutes pretending to be a swashbuckler! 🙂
