Girl, Misplaced

by Jay Nordlinger

A tale of two sculptures

There’s a new girl in town — in New York City, that is. Her name is Fearless Girl, and she’s facing, and standing up to, a charging bull. The girl appears to be about six years old. She’s just over four feet tall. And she weighs about 250 pounds — which isn’t much, for a bronze sculpture.

Her hands are on her hips, and she wears a bold, confident expression. She is indeed fearless. Her skirt is blowing, but not like Marilyn Monroe’s, bawdily. Her hair is done in a ponytail. And on her feet, there are old-fashioned, high-top, lace-up shoes. She’s a beauty, this girl. And she was sculpted by Kristen Visbal, of Lewes, Del.
