Michael Rakowitz, Iraqi-American artist of Fourth Plinth commission 'The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist' and author of upcoming cookbook A House With A Date Palm Will Never Starve, to be released in June of 2019, by Plinth. Rakowitz’s Lamassu is made from empty tins of Iraqi date syrup, alluding to the fact that historical monuments are not the only thing destroyed by war; they also decimate local economies, including the industry for date syrup which collapsed as a result of the war.
