You can call this girl anything you want, but it's still a girl -- a girl representing women. A girl in a pigtail, short skirt, and rear-end sticking out is fearless and a symbol of women. Seriously?
The girl was installed opposite of the Charging Bull sculpture that was erected after the 1987 stock market crash, as a symbol of ever-lasting growth and prosperity. It's another incarnation of the sacred bull or Zeus turning into a bull to woo the maidens. The sacredness of the bull endures: to support a bull market of higher equity prices, stock prices, and capital is about as American and patriotic as mom, the flag and apple pie. So, how are women via the 'girl 'fearless' by opposing this? Do women oppose these capitalistic values? I'm not sure what the girl is opposing exactly or what the duality is all about here. Too bad an actual woman isn't an inspiration. There could be loads of ways to play with some mythical or historical characters here. Instead we get a pouting child just before she sticks out her tongue.
Venus is a symbol of the female, of woman. That planet is in exaltation in the sign of Taurus, which is the sign of the bull, the sign of plenty, material prosperity, crops and harvest and money. This sculpture lacks the force and vigor of art, lacks any basic knowledge of art history and as a political statement seems to contradict the point of State Street's commission. Its subject matter and depiction are a perfect reflection of the women's movement so far in 2017: lacking in maturity, power, or inspiration and creativity. Derivatives aren't just financial instruments after all, but artworks commissioned by the highest bidder. Its placement here is as mixed a message as using a girl as a symbol for physically, emotionally mature women in the first place.
