It is not known who burned the sculpture down
A sculpture put together out of oil drums, cardboard boxes, cable wheels and adhesive tape has been burned down just two months after its completion.
The £2,000 Sajida Talfah - named after former Iraq leader Saddam Hussein's first wife - was unveiled in February in Holland Park, west London.
Artist Graham Hudson said it was meant to symbolise the war in Iraq.
A spokesman for Mr Hudson's gallery said the sculpture had been completely destroyed.
The sculpture was the 10th in a series of annual installations placed in Napoleon Garden.
Sajida Talfah has not been seen since 2006 when she was placed on the Iraqi government's most wanted list for supporting Sunni insurgents.
Ed Greenacre, a director for Rokeby, Mr Hudson's gallery, said he did not know who was responsible for the fire.
A spokesman for London Fire Brigade confirmed they had been called to a fire at an exhibition in Holland Park.
