The Fourth Plinth


The fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square is one of the highest profile pieces of public artwork in the UK.

The current incumbent is Gift Horse by Hans Haacke. The bronze sculpture depicts a horse skeleton with a live electronic ticker of London Stock Exchange share prices displayed on a bow around one of its legs, which explores links between power, money and history and alludes wryly to an equestrian statue of William IV originally planned for the fourth plinth.
