The Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square is currently occupied by a large blue cockerel. Juxtaposed against Nelson’s Column, it seems to represent the historic rivalry of England and France. It was sculpted by a German, Katharina Fritsch, who apparently didn’t see the nationalistic significance. For her it was a humorous riposte to all the macho military figures that abound in the area.


About John S

I'm blogging about the things I love: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. I’ve written a novel called “The Decision”, a futuristic political thriller, and first of a trilogy. I’m also the author of a book on music since the 1970s called “ I Was There - A Musical Journey” and a volume of poetry about youth, “Growin’ Up - Snapshots/ Fragments”. All available on Amazon and Kindle.
