The sculptor of the famous Wall Street “Charging Bull” statue outside the New York Stock Exchange has died.
According to Italian media, Arturo Di Modica died of cancer at age 80 in his hometown of Sicily.
Since it was installed in 1989, the sculpture located on Broad Street and Wall Street has attracted millions of visitors each year and is seen as a symbol of the power of Wall Street.
The 3.5-ton statue near the stock exchange became a destination for both tourists and locals.
For most of his life, Di Modica divided his time between New York City and Sicily.
