According to the police, the obscene message was carved into the iconic bronze sculpture, created by Italian artist Arturo di Modica, in the financial district around 2.30am on 9 September – a day after Queen Elizabeth II died.

The incident, happened just hours after the Queen’s death.

In September 2019, a Texas man was arrested after he allegedly smashed the statue with a metal banjo which left a gash in its right horn.

One thought on “Wall Street’s Famous Charging Bull Statue Vandalized With ‘F**k the Queen’ Graffiti

  1. Graffiti might just be the last refuge of the real artists to express what must be expressed. I am not for defacing things, unless they are things that symbolize my oppression or subjugation. Today, the art world is almost blocked to any who are not connected. You might be let in, but 95% of your profits are going to the tribe-owners.
