The Charging Bull of Wall Street, Manhattan, New York City

"The Bull's head is lowered to the left and the bull has taken the pose to ravage anything in its path."

They say it symbolizes prosperity and aggressive financial optimism. My first look at the Charging Bull made me feel as if some one has paused as action movie. 

Taming the beast
The sculpture by artist Arturo Di Modica is made of Bronze, about five meters long from head to tail and weighs 3,200 kilograms.

Fun fact: Tourists love to rub the bronze balls of Wall Street's Charging Bull statue as it is believed that it will bring them good luck.
