One-eyed London 2012 mascots Manlock and Wendyville — as we choose to call them — can now be spotted all over town in a variety of garbs. 83 painted representations of the duo, each dressed in a different London costume, have been installed as part of six ‘discovery trails’ to help visitors and Londoners explore the city.
The playful cyclopses follow in the footsteps of cows, elephants, eggs and phone boxes, all of which have decorated the capital in recent years. We’re still ambivalent about the mascots, but it’s good to see Mandeville in something other than the crotchless romper suit he/she/it usually favours.
Details of the sculptures and the six trails can be found on the Mayor of London Presents pages.
