JOHN Lennon's sister today labelled Yoko Ono offensive and tactless and demanded the removal of her art work from the city centre.
Ono says the work, which depicts women's private parts, is dedicated to John and his love for his mother Julia who died in a road accident when he was 18.
The images were placed by the Liverpool Biennial around Church Street and at the former St Luke's church.
But Julia Baird, Lennon's sister, said today: "The work is called My Mummy Was Beautiful. John's mother was beautiful and she was my mother too.
"She would have been offended, as would John, by the public display of gratuitous female nudity, particularly on the frontage of St Luke's church."
But Liverpool Biennial chief executive Lewis Biggs said: "The artwork is there at the invitation of the peace centre at St Luke's, in recognition of John and Yoko's work to promote peace."
