Andrew ("Red") Mason after Edward Pierce Unveiled 29 June 1989 by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, as part of the celebrations for the tercentenary of William and Mary's accession.

200px William Sculpture Central Saint Giles, St Giles High Street Rebecca Warren
Adapted from a smaller work by the sculptor also titled William. The fluid, anonymous figure is intended to "speak of the ever-shifting present" and not of the past, and thus have the opposite qualities to most public sculpture.[17]
