The Giant Blue Farmhouse Cockerel – what do you think?

“The new artwork for the Fourth Plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square, a bright blue cockerel symbolising regeneration and strength, has been unveiled.

Titled Hahn/Cock, the 4.72m high piece is by German artist Katharina Fritsch and will be on display for 18 months.”

I have made it to see the fourth plinth! It’s big, it’s blue, it’s fun! There is something joyful about it, shocking, but not in a crude or unpleasant way. I am not sure I feel regeneration, but I get strength through the vibrancy of the tone, size, and energy.

What do you think?
