Fearless Girl

Image result for fearless girl

This is a very interesting and controversial work of art. Originally, it was just a bull standing there, appearing to charge down wall street. The charging bull, which represents the sort of free market economy we have here in the U.S. – is in my opinion the perfect work of art to go on wall street. However, later on (very recently) the little girl statue was added on to appear standing in front of the charging bull. This piece if meant to represent a fearless girl, which is meant to empower the modern feminist movement. Overall, I like both pieces but I think the fearless girl is simply out of place, also I think that it’s disrespectful to the other artists works (the bull), since it wasn’t his intention to have the girl there – and as a result changes the whole meaning of the art.
