John Lennon honoured with tapestry

New York: A 24 foot-by-10 foot tapestry honouring the legendary Beatles musician John Lennon was unveiled in front of Yoko Ono, Bono and The Edge at Ellis Island.

The tapestry was commissioned by Art for Amnesty founder Bill Shipsey as a thank you to Ono for giving Amnesty International the rights to record cover versions of Lennon's post-Beatles songs in 2004, allowing Amnesty to raise over USD 5 million in royalties since, reported New York Daily News.

Bono, The Edge and music business impresario Jimmy Iovine have donated the tapestry to The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation for display at the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration.

The memento depicts Manhattan as a "Yellow Submarine" with John Lennon as the captain manning the vessel.
