A whirl of cream topped with parasites and a recreation of a protective deity destroyed by Islamic State in Iraq will go on display on Trafalgar Square's Fourth Plinth.
The two artworks have been chosen to reside at the landmark spot in London - currently home to a bronze, thumbs up sign - in 2018 and 2020.
Lamassu, a winged bull which guarded the entrance to the Nergal Gate of Nineveh from 700BC, will be remade out of empty, date syrup cans, from Iraq.
The deity was destroyed, along with other artefacts in the Mosul Museum, by terror group IS in 2015.
He said that the date syrup cans represented the once-thriving industry in Iraq decimated by war.
The deity will go on display in 2018 and will be followed by The End, by British artist Heather Phillipson - a sculpture of a scoop of cream, topped with a cherry, a drone and a fly - in 2020.
