Antony Gormley's latest project, One & Other, has again caused a stir at its base in Trafalgar Square.
The display had previously been the home to a man who appeared on the block with fishnet tights
and heels who went on to strip; another time a topless woman took time out to paint her chest in front of passers-by.
But the most recent participant, known only as Simon, simply took all his clothes off, much to the delight and cheers of other people in the capital.
The plinther, who spoke of his experience-to-be on the artist's website, said: "Am just about to hit 50.
"Presently going through a difficult but long-anticipated separation. Feeling renewed, though. This event will serve to symbolise the beginning of a new age for me.
"Always wanted to be a sculpture!"
Antony Gormley is perhaps best known for creating the Angel of the North, a public sculpture based in Sunderland and manufactured in nearby Hartlepool.
