A cock(erel) in Trafalgar Square
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?

How long before that picture caption is changed to “Katharina Fritsch with a big cock – and behind him, a blue rooster”
