About this spot
Nelson's Ship in a Bottle is a monument created by British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare. Commissioned in 2009 by the Greater London Authority, it was originally placed on the Fourth Plinth in London's Trafalgar Square in 2010.

It was subsequently relocated to a plinth outside the Sammy Ofer Wing of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, in southeast London, going on permanent display on 23 April 2012, two days before the museum's 75th anniversary. The work was purchased for £362,500 through a joint fund including a £50,000 contribution from the Art Fund and £264,300 from members of the public

The monument depicts Admiral Nelson’s ship HMS Victory and measures 280 cm x 250 cm x 500 cm.
