The Charging Bull Of Wall Street

The infamous Charging Bull is a massive 7,000 lbs bronze statue that sits in the middle of the busiest financial district in the world: New York’s Wall Street.

 

In financial market lingo, a “bull market” means a period of rising prices and economic optimism, therefore making it a great symbol for Wall Street right?

 

Well, no. The statue was actually erected illegally, an act of “guerrilla art.” Artist Arturo Di Modica paid to have the bull statue casted in Brooklyn. Then, with the help of some friends, installed it late one night in December of 1989. Di Modica spent nearly $360,000 to have the statue casted and transported. The Wall Street bull has few siblings placed in financial districts all over the globe, including the “Bund Bull’ in Shanghai, and another brother in Amsterdam.

 

To this day, the Raging Bull of Wall Street is seen as a permanent addition to the finance district of New York City. Tourists love coming to see the bull rubbing his nose, head and large testicles (all of which have been “polished” by the continued rubbing) for good luck!
