Wall Street’s Fearless Girl statue gets new place of honour

NEW YORK — The Fearless Girl is making her stand outside the very temple of American capitalism.

The hands-on-her-hips statue that spent most of the past two years staring down Wall Street’s Charging Bull sculpture, becoming a spunky symbol of feminine empowerment, was unveiled Monday at her new permanent home, in front of the New York Stock Exchange.

Sculptor of Wall Street’s bull wants ‘Fearless Girl’ moved

NEW YORK — The sculptor of Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” statue on Wednesday demanded the removal of the “Fearless Girl” statue that’s faced off against the bull since last month.

Arturo Di Modica said his 11-foot-tall bull is supposed to represent “freedom in the world, peace, strength, power and love” but “Fearless Girl” has turned his work’s message into something negative.
