The installation of a giant French blue cockerel which is scheduled to take pride of place on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square in July, has received a formal objection.
Art collectors of ArtKabinett social media network suspected that many Londoners might object to a huge cock thrusting skyward in this historic London locale.
The complaint was filed at Westminster Council, ahead of the final planning permission decision, this past Tuesday. The plans for the sculpture were drawn up in 2010, and the rooster was picked as the plinth’s commissioned artwork for 2013.
The cock replaces the giant golden boy on a rocking horse by Elmgreen and Dragset.
