Yup, you can! The London 2012 auction site allows you to bid for any of the Olympic mascot sculptures offered. You probably have to make a fast decision. It seems like new sculptures are added every day and are only on for a couple of days.
Keeping with the animal theme from yesterday’s post I am introducing Safari Mandeville and Birdy Wenlock. These two Olympic mascots are also roaming Regent’s Park.
Safari Mandeville says, “I am travelling across the world on safari to see some amazing creatures.” I like Safari Mandeville. He has got beautiful colors.
Birdy Wenlock is pretty cute, too. Similar to Animal Wenlock he has details all around and you need to see him from all sides to appreciate his beauty.
The owl looks great.
“Quack, quack”, he says, “I am enjoying bird-watching. Can you spot the water birds?”
I might have caught a little too much sun with this photo below. But we definitely do not want to complain about too much sun! Birdy Wenlock and Animal Wenlock are definitely my current favorites.
Punk Wenlock is still eluding my path…
