Structuralist art analysis of Cibber’s battle plaques on Nelson’s Column

Four bronze plaques by Cibber, on the four sides Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square, London, picture the four main battles of Admiral Horatio Nelson. Each plaque also expresses the standard, universal, subconscious structure of visual art, named mindprint (Furter 2014), as demonstrated below. The structure, unknown to artists and art historians, includes the standard set of twelve to sixteen archetypal features; in the standard peripheral sequence; with their eyes or focal features on an axial grid; and with limb joints or junctures at certain polar points.
