Giant Statue Harambe-The Gorilla Installed At New York’s Wall Street

A 7-feet tall statue of Harambe, the Gorilla at Cincinnati Zoo, has been installed at New York’s Wall Street, facing the famous Charging Bull Statue. It has been used as the symbol to represent millions of Americans who struggle due to U.S. capitalism, which “enriches the wealthy elites and leaves the average person behind.”

A 7-feet tall statue of Harambe- the gorilla from Cincinnati Zoo, has been installed at New York’s Wall Street, facing the famous Charging Bull Statue. Installed by Sapien.Network, a social networking platform that describes itself as “dedicated to putting the needs and welfare of human beings first”, the giant bronze statue portrays how Wall Street has become “Bananas”. 

According to NBC, Co-founders of Sapien.Network, Tejay Aluru, Robert Giometti and Ankit Bhatia said that Harambe has been used as the symbol to represent millions of Americans who struggle due to U.S. capitalism, which “enriches the wealthy elites and leaves the average person behind.”

The statue, which is drawing huge crowds and social media attention, has been put in the same place that was once occupied by the statue of  ‘Fearless Girl’, before being removed in November 2018.

Harambe was shot dead in 2016 for the safety of a 3year old baby who had entered his enclosure. The incident sparked huge debate and outrage as many argued that the Gorilla’s behaviour towards the child was not aggressive, and it even appeared that the animal was protecting the child. The statue was placed along with 10,000 bananas, which were later donated to food banks and community fridges.
