A Wall Street Bull & Bear Sculpture by Laurel Peterson Gregory
11″h × 12.5″w × 7″d
Edition of 99
This is Wall Street Waltz Two. We call this the dance that drives America. As you can see, it’s a unique perspective on the give and take of Wall Street and the financial markets.
Many of the characteristics of my work are here, including the concave and convex curves, conscious use of volumetric mass, movement, balance, realistic proportions, and, of course, humor. I chose an irregular textured style here to be reflective of the unpredictable nature of the financial market.
And while a light treatment of the market, Wall Street Waltz 2 also has a unique and somewhat classical gravity that just works.
But there’s more here than a beautiful bronze sculpture: Wall Street Waltz Two embodies many stock market symbols, such as the rich golden patina that captures the essential nature of the whole business. The bull’s arm is up signifying a rising stock market, while the bear’s arm is down. And of course, the bull is slightly larger to signify strength, power, and our natural bias for the bull to overpower the bear.
Wall Street Waltz Two is the perfect gift for any financial executive or stock market professional! It serves as a reminder that the ebbs and flows of the market are a dance, and to not take things too seriously.
