NYC Dream: The charging bull vs. the fearless girl


The Fearless girl sculpture by Kristen Visbal in Wall Street indeed drew a lot of media attention. The placement of Fearless girl in front of the Charging bull by Arturo Di Modica was extremely strategic! As the charging bull represents financial power of Wall Street (or capitalism in America) in influencing world-level decisions, the fearless girl can be studied as an icon of millennials taking a stand against “life-long debt” imposed on individuals in a capitalist country. On the other hand the impact is further augmented by placing a girl’s sculpture instead of that of a boy. The story of David and Goliath is pretty famous. But “Diana and Goliath” was cleverly timely with the Wonder Woman film doing so well in the box office!
