The iconic Wall Street bull over the holiday period received a multi-coloured sweater. Created by the crafty dynamo Agata Olek, the Crocheted Charging Bull is a gift from the artist to those who couldn’t be with their families during the holidays, as well as to those who don’t have coats to cover themselves. Olek crocheted together a number of handmade panels to give the 7,100 pound bronze statue a new festive skin. This act of guerilla crafting can easily be seen as a direct homage the original sculptor Arturo Di Modica who originally installed the sculpture without permission in front of the New York Stock Exchange in December 1989.
