Wall Street Bull Covered in Crochet By NYC Artist (VIDEOS)

One of this year's Christmas miracles was the appearance of a brightly colored crocheted cover over the Wall Street bull. As quickly as it arrived however, it was gone, leaving only captivating images.

The obvious who/what/when/where/why was finally answered when the artist responsible for the handiwork released a video of the installation.

The artist, a woman named Olek, is a crocheting machine and has created costumes, sculptures and even inflatables using the yarn. You can see more of her handiwork here.

She explained to CNN that she "wanted to make it for all those people who couldn't make it to their families and for those people who don't have coats and don't have any money."
