'Charging Bull' sculptor says 'Fearless Girl' installed without his permission

'Charging Bull' sculptor says 'Fearless Girl' installed without his permission

"She is inspiring everyone at a moment when we need inspiration", adding that the artwork "means so much to the people of NY".

Siegel also said that State Street Global Advisors, the company that installed "Fearless Girl", made money off the bull by running ads that included both sculptures, though the company has since omitted the bull. But the city extended its stay amid ebullient interest on social media, generous press attention and at least two petitions. It refers to an exchange-traded fund dubbed "SHE", which invests in companies with women in top executive posts. Not only does it shamelessly pander to every clueless joe who only became a woke feminist after having a daughter, it is really rude to make "Charging Bull" look like it's attacking a defenseless minor without first getting "Charging Bull's" consent. The Italian immigrant intended the work to bolster American traders' spirits after the stock crash of a few years before - though the NYSE, it must be said, was not pleased with its holiday gift, hefting away the bull by the end of the day.

"Very simply we request respectfully that the "Fearless Girl" statue be removed", lawyer Norman Siegel told a news conference. The city eventually responded to the public clamoring for the artwork to be allowed to remain in the Financial District, steps from Wall Street. "My bull is a symbol of prosperity and for strength".

His lawyers argue that proper procedure was not followed by city officials when choosing to grant the permit.

The statue is a regular stop for selfie-seekers in Lower Manhattan.

He's not entirely wrong, but it's somewhat ironic that Di Modica has a problem with the statue being placed there without going through the proper channels.

The 7,100-pound (3,200 kg) bull itself originally appeared as guerrilla art, installed unofficially in front of the New York Stock Exchange by Di Modica in 1989 and meant to convey the fighting spirit of the United States and of New York. It has become a popular tourist attraction over the past 30 years, but now it's facing (quite literally) some stiff competition.

Whether she stays or she goes, the resolute sculpture has already changed her neighbourhood.

"I love Charging Bull", Kristen Visbal told the Associated Press last month.
