🏙☝🏼«Бык с Уолл-Стрит» — памятник, который борется за звание самой известной достопримечательности Нью-Йорка с самой статуей Свободы🗽🗽🗽 Скульптура разъяренного животного - это прообраз напористых биржевых игроков и символ необузданного капитализма📊💰📱Считается, что бычок приносит удачу в делах🤞🏻, нужно лишь подержать его за рога. Однако прохожие полируют бронзовому гиганту не только голову, но и задние и весьма выдающиеся части тела 🤪 🙈
#ChargingBull suunniteltiin alunperin juhlistamaan #Amerikan ja erityisesti #NewYorkin can-do -henkeä, jonne eri puolilta maailmaa tulevat ihmiset voisivat tulla riippumatta heidän alkuperästään tai olosuhteistaan ja heidän päättäväisyys ja kova työnsä voittaisivat kaikki esteet, jotta he menestyisivät. Mikä on New Yorkin suosikki patsaasi? Kiitos @phnx_, kun annoit meidän jakaa tämän muistosi matkaltasi #NYC issä.
Just for fun... Chinese artist Chen Wenling v Wall Street's Charging Bull, featuring a demon-horned Bernie Madoff. The work is titled “What You see Might Not Be Real” and references the Ponzi Scheme Madoff ran in what was the biggest fraudulent scheme in U.S. history.
Chen Wenling (b.1969) is a sculptor who was born in Anxi, a tiny village in the Fujian Province of China. His family was poor and could not afford to buy him new toys, so he used clay that was readily available in his surroundings to make small sculptures to play with. From these humble sculpting beginnings came the desire to study and work in fine art.
Charging Bull, which is sometimes referred to as the Wall Street Bull or the Bowling Green Bull, is a bronze sculpture installed unofficially by Arturo Di Modica, near Wall Street in Manhattan. Overnight it became a sensation and when the city confiscated it 24hrs after it was installed, public outcry led to it being granted a "temporary permit" in 1989, which normally grants 11 months but it's been standing there ever since. "Charging Bull, shows an aggressive or even belligerent force on the move, but unpredictably but it's not far-fetched to say the theme is the energy, strength, and unpredictability of the stock market." - Wikipedia
In March 2017, a small bronze statue of a girl appeared facing the bull. Di Modica got upset saying that this artist was using his bulls popularity to try and further their own agenda and demanded it's removal. 11mths later and the Statue is still there.... #nyc#newyork#newyorkcity#newyork_instagram#newyorknewyork#chargingbull#chargingbullnyc#newyorktips#wallstreet#wallstreetbull#exploringnewyork#travellinghawks
Sometimes you have to take life by the horns and conquer it, in order to do what's best for yourself and the ones you love (definitely not what this statue represents, but that's how I view it 🙂). #ChallengeAccpeted#ChargingBull#WallStreet
Wall Street, New York 🇺🇸 American patriotism is definately one of a kind. Their pride to be American is truly beautiful and it should be a guiding light for everyone. Not only do they love their country, but are also helpful and generous to everyone, who is new to their society 💞 Americans are people who take responsibility for their actions and work really hard to achieve their goals. They are always involved in all kinds of events that take place in their local society - maybe because they have such a strong need to bond they feel proud and as a consequence they are such patriots 💪🏻 I will never forget the summer of 2017, when catastrophic floods took away thousands of houses in Texas. Believe it or not but in about ONE DAY a small village of Old Forge had organised this huge truck of goods for the victims of the flooding. Of course I know that not every person is like that but after spending a few months in a certain country you kind of get the sense of their characteristics. Every country & its citizens are different and that’s what makes travelling so magical 🌎 If I was to describe Americans in three words I think I would say: hard workers, patriots and dream believers ⭐️ Worth a visit! #america#wallstreet#ny#newyork#centralpark#chargingbull#american#polishgirl#travelblogger#travel#vacation#culture#patriots#texas#oldforge#patriotism#americanflag#flag#adirondacks#flood#nystate#newyorkstate#photography#photooftheday#roadtrip#americanpatriot#trip#usa#usagirl#beautiful
