|The Bull and the Bear|
This weeks public art piece is a really great cement piece that is situated in historic downtown Jozi, in an area where the Johannesburg Stock Exchange was based from about 1903 to the late 1970's.
Featuring a Bull and a Bear, which indicate upward and downward trends and are often used to symbolize a stock exchange, this is a really unassuming but effective piece.
Other Stock Exchanges have a Bull and/or Bear outside, and I love seeing how they differ all over the world. Just for fun here is the public artwork that can be found outside the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Picture: http://www.german-architecture.info/GERMANY/G-FRA/FRA-024.htm)
