German artist Katharina Fritsch's artwork Hahn/Cock as it appeared in Trafalgar Square's Fourth Plinth in London, Britain, in 2013. The artwork is a sculptural portrait of the domestic cockerel or rooster. Fritsch describes Hahn/Cock as reflecting an image of ourselves: 'people can see themselves, their character in animals.' The sculpture is one of several to be installed on the new Roof Terrace of the East Building. Hahn/Cock‎, on loan to the National Gallery of Art from Glenstone Museum, will go on view in July, two months ahead of the East Building reopening. Copyright EPA/ANDY RAIN
