London art project that put people on plinth ends

A THREE-month art project has ended after giving over 2,000 people 60 minutes of fame in London's Trafalgar Square.
For 100 days, Antony Gormley's "One & Other" saw people stand atop an empty plinth for an hour at a time.
Participants included a man dressed as Godzilla, a jobseeker holding a giant resume and a water scientist in a fish costume. Several others stripped naked.
The first naked participant was asked by police to put on underpants after a bystander complained, but the others were allowed to remain nude.
The work was hugely popular but drew mixed reviews from critics. Gormley said it was a celebration of Britain's diversity.
The last "plinther" was 30-year-old Emma Burns. She left the 23-foot- (7-meter-) high platform just after 9am today.
