The Fourth Plinth artwork in Trafalgar Square is a replica of Vice Admiral Lord Nelson's ship, HMS Victory. The artwork, by Yinka Shonibare will sit in a large, glass bottle.

It has 37 large sails made of patterned textiles associated with African dress and symbolic of African identity and independence.

The sculpture will stay on the plinth for 18 months.
