A social networking platform called Sapien.Network installed a statue of Harambe staring down the infamous Wall Street Bull, as well as placed 10,000 bananas surrounding the bull.
But, why?🤷♀️ While the bull statue is a Wall Street staple, the co-founders of Sapien.Network said they used Harambe to symbolize the millions of people who had suffered from the U.S. capitalist system. A sign nearby read “10,000 bananas will surround Wall Street’s iconic Charging Bull to illustrate just how ‘bananas’ Wall Street has become.”
Why is this important🤔 This isn’t the first art installation to face off with the bull. In mid-2017, a statue titled “Fearless Girl” showed a young girl standing in front of the bull with her hands on her hips. A figure that fueled powerful conversations about women in leadership & inspired so many. The statue stayed in that location until 2018.
