More from the East Wing of the National Gallery

On the rooftop of the East Wing sits this blue rooster.  It looked very familiar and I learned why.  It sat on a plinth at Trafalgar Square in 2014 when we visited London.

In London below.

To put it on the rooftop it was taken apart and lifted up by crane.  Even in parts it was too big for the doorways.

In Washington.

The man responsible was there at the rooster when we arrived.

The rooster has a great view of Constitution Ave.

Here is the sculptor responsible for the rooster she has titled it Hahn/Cock

Several of the Vantage House residents remembered seeing the rooster at the Glenstone Museum.
