Infamous in the S.F. Business Community, The Lord of The Bulls has been shown on the floor of the Pacific Stock Exchange (PSE) during trading hours on seven different occasions between l985 and 1997. Each time the Dow set a new record.
On Jan. 20, 1992, a disastrous fire, destroyed Tom's home and studio. Tom went into the burning building and rescued the Bull sculpture and his companion, Ursus, the Bear. It took two years to rebuild (studio and house) and a year to restore the badly damaged sculptures. At his "coming out" party at the Pacific Stock Exchange on Nov 2, 1995 the market closed at an all-time high and prompted Dan Lavene to say, "The seven foot high wooden icon has developed a reputation for possessing mystical market moving powers."
San Francisco Business Times Nov. 10, 1995
