Alison Lapper Pregnant

Location: Trafalgar Square, London (from 2005 to 2007 only)

Sculpture by Marc Quinn, Carrara marble; first unveiled in 2005

British artist, Marc Quinn made a series of marble sculptures of people either born with limbs missing or who have had them amputated. This culminated in the 15 ton marble statue of Alison Lapper, a British woman (who herself is an artist) who was born with no arms and severely shortened legs. The statue was only displayed temporarily, occupying the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square in London for 18 months (2005 to 2007) (info source: wikipedia).
