The bull is Samuel’s business mascot because he was inspired by the artist Arturo di Modica, who is known for creating the sculptures found in many financial districts throughout the world. While most people believe that the Wall Street Bull represents the strength of a growing economy, the artist himself has described his work as representing the personal strength of the American people and their ability to swiftly recover from adversity and obstacles. Mr. Modica’s Wall Street Bull was actually created following a stock market crash in order to provide ordinary people with inspiration and hope. People commonly seek an attorney when they are faced with one of life’s minor obstacles or major catastrophes. During these times it is important to remember that everyone has the strength to not only recover, but to become stronger.
