“Charging Bull” is seeing red

Arturo Di Modica is not happy that the Fearless Girl now staring down his Charging Bull has effectively turned it into a villain.

The artist who sculpted Wall Street’s iconic “Charging Bull” is seeing red over the statue of the defiant girl placed in his snorting beast’s path – and says she should be carted away immediately.

The bull is art, Arturo Di Modica said of his bronze behemoth. The girl is, well, bull.

“That is not a symbol! That’s an advertising trick,” the 76-year-old Sicilian immigrant said, clutching his heart.

 

Does this change the sculptor’s original intent?
