Skinny horse chases giant blue Coq from Trafalgar


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).
