Fearless-ly STUPID Girl
Arturo Di Modica is attempting to nullify the femi-fascist movements' co-opting of his Charging Bull sculpture. Good for him.
Mr. Di Midicas' lawyer says:
"The statue of the young girl becomes the Fearless Girl only because of the Charging Bull:
"The work is incomplete without Mr. Di Modicas' Charging Bull, and as such it constitutes a derivative work."
I myself agree. The positioning, of the figure as well as the cast and "finish" of it makes it look an attempt at making it look like it goes with the Di Modica work.
Instead of a symbol of what Mr. Di Modica intended, "The strength of America, the strength of the market." The statue was originally installed in front of the New York Stock Exchange in 1987 after the stock market crash of that year.
Now it looks like a tableau of a stupid little girl taunting a large animal and about to get pounded into the dirt and not what its plaque says about "the power of women" (They spelled it wrong! Shouldn't it be "the power of WOMYN"?).
Well I guess two can play at that game.
Hows' about a statue dubbed "Sneering SS Guard" in front of the National Holocaust Museum?
Or "Defiant KluKKer" on the sidewalk in front of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church?
Maybe "Sword Swinging Jap Fanatic" near the National World War II Memorial on the mall in Washington, D.C.?
Yes, there's nothing like "the power of WOMYN(!)" by rubbing someone elses' nose in it.
We don't do it. There's no reason the "left" should either.
Maybe the matter can be settled by just re-naming it "Stupid About To Be Gored, Flung and Stomped Into the Ground Girl".
Jus' sayin' ...
