Really Good

This could be landing in London's Trafalgar Square

It’s a thumb.

BEFORE YOU STRAIN your eyes too hard. It is a sculpture of a giant thumb.

A thumbs up to be exact.

The work by David Shrigley, entitled ‘Really Good’, is one of six pieces short listed in London to occupy the space on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square.

All six works, including the thumb, are being displayed in miniature versions in the crypt of St Martin-in-the-Fields Church in the city centre from tomorrow.

Visitors are being asked to choose and vote for their favourite.

What do you think? Which one gets you feeling ‘Really Good’?
