The bronze bull statue has been one of the most important symbols of American capitalism, and it also attracts many tourists. This bronze bull statue was designed by the Italian artist Dimo Decca.

The bronze bull is nearly 5 meters in length and 6300 kilograms in weight. Countless tourists are willing to take a picture with this bronze bull and stroke the horns of the bull to pray for good luck.

In 1987, after the New York stock market crashed, Dimo Decca designed it with inspiration. He said: "When I saw people lose everything, I was very sad, so I started a beautiful work of art creation for young Americans." For funding, he sold parts of his farm in his hometown Sicily, raising a total of $360,000.

At a midnight in 1989, Dimo Decca erected the bull outside the New York Stock Exchange, and claimed that it was a symbol of American strength and courage. Dimo Decca could not obtain a license, so a few days later the copper cattle on December 20, 1989 was migrated to Bowling Green Park.
