The 4.1m high golden sculpture of a young boy riding a rocking horse is entitled: ‘Powerless Structures, Fig. 101’. The plinth was originally built to house a bronze equestrian statue of William IV that was never installed. The project is commissioned by the Mayor of London as part of the rolling programme of contemporary art commissions for the empty Fourth Plinth.)
