Mayor Sadiq Khan presented artist David Shrigley’s sculpture “Really Good” on Thursday, a seven-meter (23 ft) high hand with a long thumb cast in bronze, saying it represented “optimism, positivity, the best of us”, reports Reuters.

The plinth, built in 1841, was meant for a statue of King William IV but stood empty because of lack of funding. More recently, it has hosted various commissioned artworks.
