8. The Charging Bull
New York City
This statue weighs a whopping 3,200 kilograms (7,100 lb). It first arrived in New York City in December 1989 as part of a Christmas display. When it was taken away, residents complained. So it was brought back and put in the financial district.
The idea is that rubbing the testicles of this rather large animal statue will bring you good luck. As this has become quite the popular activity among tourists, that part of the body is a distinctly different color.
Many think that the bull symbolizes the prosperity of Wall Street and success. However, the artist had intended for it to symbolize American strength and prosperity.
His idea was that in a place like New York, people from all over the world move there and find success. Either way, you can always find lots of people lining up to rub the statue’s testicles for good luck.
7. Dolly Parton
Right in front of the Sevier County Courthouse in Tennessee, you can find a statue of the famous country singer Dolly Parton. It’s of her sitting on a rock and playing her guitar.
This part of Tennessee was her home, and the residents wanted to pay tribute to the famous singer. So they erected a statue in her honor. While it seems 100 percent tasteful, there’s a little twist.
Tourists stopping by like to have a little fun. Her left breast, while covered, is one that some people like to grab when paying the statue a visit. It is thought to bring good luck in love and relationships.
