Sydney's First Fleet Park has a new peachy attraction which according to LiveNews.com.au 'Ella' was modelled on All Saints star Jolene Anderson. How long the peaches survived, who knows.

BMF Sydney has created ‘Ella’, a giant, naked woman in the centre of Sydney, whose skin is made up entirely of peaches (approximately 24,000); she is a creative and engaging interpretation of Ella Baché’s brand proposition, Skin Good Enough To Eat

    If those are real peaches, I want to run up and take a big bite out of Jolene's ass.

    Plus, ew, banaflies when it rots. Yuck.

    I walked past this today, the peaches are looking a little grey and moldy, especially around the top of the head... She's turning into a bit of a zombie. I guess they didn't really think this through too well. I'll try to get some pics tomorrow.

    That would be awesome. Does it smell all peachy still? I thought the scent of 26thousand peaches might be awesome.

    Just imagine how jealous they are that they didn't think of this in Georgia.

    Even as shown in the photo, with the peaches all fresh, it still makes me think she has some kind of skin condition.

    Did anyone complain about it being a needless waste of food?

    I can see her coming to life in some horrible Aussie horror flick. The Attack of the 50 ft Rotting Peach Woman. And she has a legion of winged kangaroos like the Wicked Witch's flying monkeys. And the final scene takes place in Sydney Harbor with the Opera House in flames and the Bridge collapsing under the weight of the rotting peaches.

    I think I'll pitch this to Fox next week.

    Someone should have time-lapse photographed her so we could watch her rot.

    I thought of that too. Yesterday I did a search to see if maybe someone had set up a webcam, but I couldn't find one.

    They might want to remove the sign, if they haven't already.

    Fox might want you to move it to Georgia, have her attack Ted Turner's place - or CNN! :-)

    Brings a new meaning to the Allman Brothers "Eat A Peach" album, eh?

    Except that some other filmmaker already burned down Atlanta for some little movie back in 1939.

    I loved Eat A Peach when I was a teenager. Of course, I was a teenager when the album first came out. :-)

    Who said anything about burning down ATL? (I think I saw that movie - "Go Get Some Wind" or "It Blows in Goergia", or something like that...:-) - in the theatre, in re-re-release ).

    Just smear all the buildings and roads with peach slime, instead ... ;-0

    I was a teen too when that came out, and I saw them live (once with everybody in the band - no one had died yet; and once after Duane's death).

    Ok, no fire, just a lot of peach slime. I got it. Good thing you're not a WGA member or we'd both be in a lot of trouble right now. :-)

    I saw them once with Duane in New York, and several times after he died, but I think the last time I saw them was still over thirty years ago. Probably in '75 or '76.

    If they don't it won't be too long before people think they're claiming Ella causes severe skin disease.
