A big blue cock on a pedestal.

The electric blue colouring really brightens up Trafalgar Square.

“Hahn/Cock Sculpture at Trafalgar Square”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

At Trafalgar Square you can see an interesting jet blue coloured sculpture of a cockerel presently occupying the fourth plinth in the northwest corner of the square. This sculpture was created by German Artist Kathaina Fritsch and put on display in July 2013.

The structure is 4.7 metres tall and made of fibreglass. It seems completely out of place on the square but is oddly appealing to look at. If you stand behind the sculpture, you can capture the cockerel and Nelson column in the same picture frame. Unfortunately, they are both facing away from you from this position.

Keep in mind that the fourth plinth is used for temporary displays only and it seems the giant blue cockerel will only remain for 18 months before being replaced. So, this one seems to only be available to see in 2014 for those interested.
