As the stock market sees continuous plunges in China, stock buyers resort to their own ways to wish for a good market.

Recently, a statue of a bull riding on a lying bear was found in front of a gallery in Xiamen, East China’s Fujian province.

6.1 meters in length and 3.4 meters in height, the bronze statue weighs 3 tons. The owner of it has confirmed that the metaphor of the statue relates directly to the “bull market” and “bear market”: the statue wishes for a triumph of bull market over bear market.

In the spirit of touching the balls of the Wall Street Bull in New York, many stock buyers come from afar to light incense in front of the statue.

In the meantime, many netizens squeeze an odd smile at it.

“Am I the only one who’s being evil here? The position is classic.” one commented.

“Does this have anything to do with procreation worship?” another asked.
