Time is up. The 18 month period for displaying the giant Bleu Coq sculpture recently ended, and a new skinny horse sculpture will replace it on the 4th plinth near Lord Nelson’s famous statue in Trafalgar. The Coq was a very vivid & whimsical sculpture, a symbolic tribute to feminism & la France. Its’ outrageous bright colour challenged the stodgy bland grey space it occupied in Trafalgar Square. I really enjoyed seeing Coq on its roost during a recent London visit. Vive la France! (Et la Fraternite entre les pays).
