A recreation of a protective deity destroyed by Islamic State and a sculpture of a scoop of ice cream topped with a drone have been shortlisted for Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth.
Organisers have now unveiled maquettes of the proposed works, which also include a white robe, to sit on the Fourth Plinth in 2018 and 2020.
One of the proposed sculptures, The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist, by US artist Michael Rakowitz, is a recreation of Lamassu, a winged bull and protective deity which was destroyed by the IS terror group in Iraq in 2015.
