The latest work of art to adorn the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square has been unveiled by Joanna Lumley.

Powerless Structures, Fig. 101 is a golden-coloured, four-metre high bronze depiction of a boy riding a rocking horse. Produced by Scandinavian art duo Elmgreen and Dragset, it was described by Joanna Lumley as a 'completely unthreatening and adorable creature' that would 'make us all look around our fantastic city and look at all the other sculptures and statues which adorn this miracle of a place which is called London'. She also described the work as a 'golden boy which I hope bodes well for the future for the Olympics'.

Yinka Shonibare's large-scale Nelson's Ship In A Bottle is being replaced on the northwest plinth of the square by the sculpture. 

Elmgreen and Dragset, who produced the sculpture, admitted that the general public will either 'love or hate it'. They added that it was a 'huge honour' to have their work displayed in the square.
