Wall Street Bull (Agata "Crocheted" Olek)

"I started it with a bike and ended up with the Charging Bull as a "Christmas gift" to NYC and a tribute to the sculptor of the bull, Arturo di Modica[...] Who, in another guerrilla act, placed the bull on Wall Street in Christmas of 1987 as a symbol of the "strength and power of the American people," following the 1987 Stock Market Crash.
This crocheted cover represents my best wishes to all of us. It will be a great, prosperous year with many wonderful surprises!!!"

- Olek, in a Dec. 2010 e-mail to Bowery Boogie.
