40 Fourth Plinth at Trafalgar Square in London, England

Trafalgar Square has several permanent statues, three of which are on large slabs. There was an additional pedestal that remained empty for decades. It is called the Fourth Plinth. Since 1995, it has been famous for exhibiting bold, attention-getting artwork on a rotating basis. Past sculptures include a 16.5 foot blue rooster, a child on a rocking horse, a female nude with no arms and Lord Nelson’s ship in a bottle. The most innovative, called “One & Other,” featured 2,400 people who took turns standing on the plinth 24/7 for 100 days. Since 2015, “Gift Horse” by Hans Haacke has been exhibited. On the ribbon is a London Stock Exchange tickertape.
