7m-high sculpture of a hand giving a thumbs up sign for the Fourth Plinth Programme. The sculpture was cast in bronze with the same dark patina as the other statues in Trafalgar Square

The Mayor of London's Fourth Plinth Programme invites international artists to make new works for the capital. Shrigley's ambition with the work was that would become a self-fulfilling prophecy; that things considered 'bad', such as the economy, the weather and society, will benefit from a change of consensus towards optimism.
