The Blue Rooster of Trafalgar Square

on July 25, 2013

Today we are in London en route to Italy and I thought I was seeing things when confronted with a 4.72m high blue rooster (wearing a hat) on a plinth in Trafalgar Square- famous for its Nelson’s Column and fountains, and pigeons too! I appear to be followed by hens everywhere I go!
Unveiled just today by Boris Johnston, The Mayor, it’s German sculptress Katharina Fritsch says the giant azure rooster the size of a London Bus represents regeneration and strength. In a historic square full of monuments to military heros I’m sure our big blue friend will ruffle a few feathers.
