  • Zero stars for the fourth plinth. Total waste of money and effort. Unsightly and out of place. A random piece of indulgent tasteless work. Like a dream that has no dreamer. Like a cloud without a sky. Like a truth with no believer. Like a mother without a child..... NEXT!!!

  • The Fourth Plinth is the northwest plinth in Trafalgar Square in central London. It was originally intended to hold an equestrian statue of William IV, but remained bare due to insufficient funds. For over 150 years the fate of the plinth was debated. In September 2005 The Fourth Plinth Commission started working and placed so far 7 art projects.
