'Alison Lapper Pregnant' by Marc Quinn

21 October 2005

It seemed particularly appropriate to be in Trafalgar Square this week of all weeks: Tuesday was a cold, clear sunny day and I got my first chance to see the statue of Alison Lapper on the fourth plinth. Compared to the newspaper photos it seemed even more striking – bigger, brighter and more covered in pigeons! There were lots of people stopping to look at the statue and several people sketching it – which seems like a good thing.
