LONDON : A giant swirl of replica whipped cream, topped with sculpted cherry, fly and drone, is to appear in  London's Trafalgar Square, for the next two years, the mayor's office said Tuesday.

The artwork - titled ''THE END'' - is the latest sculpture to be commissioned for the empty fourth plinth in the world-famous landmark.

Created by British artist Heather Phillipson, who works in video, sculpture and drawing, the drone will also transmit a live feed of the square.

It will be visible a dedicated website, ''giving a sculpture's eye perspective'', curators said.

'' 'The End' responds to Trafalgar Square, as a site of mass gathering, celebration, protest and personal broadcast, shared with other forms of creaturely life,'' they added in a statement.

Organisers described ''The End'' as ''exuberant, uneasy and suggesting hubris and impending collapse'', without elaborating on the inspiration for the symbolic disintegration.

Its March 26 unveiling will come nearly two months after Britain's expected exit the European Union, which anti-Brexit campaigners fear could spell political and economic ruin. [AFP]
