Nelson's Ship in A Bottle to sit on Fourth Plinth
Westminster City Council’s planning committee has granted permission for the latest ‘sculpture’ for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square
The installation will be a larger-than-life ‘Nelson’s Ship in A Bottle’ designed by Turner Prize nominee Yinka Shonibare. It will be on the plinth from April 2010 until 2012. The ship inside the 5 metre by 2.5 metre acrylic bottle is a scale replica of Nelson’s HMS Victory.
