What’s 14 feet high, ultramarine blue and standing on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square?

A giant cockerel, designed by German artist Katharina Fritsch!

The cock’s creator Katharina Fritsch told The Guardian newspaper: “I think the English have a great sense of humour. I know they like to play games with language. They like their double meanings. So I wanted to play around.”

I kind of like how blue and bright it is! What do you think?
