The village of East Hampton is to unveil a new ‘Platinum Bull” sculpture this weekend.
The sculpture, in the center of Herrick Park, had people in awe, as it was being shined and polished before its official unveiling.
“I think it is something that is really enjoyable for the whole community,” mayor of East Hampton Village Jerry Larson told News 12.
The mammoth sculpture -- created by East Hampton’s own Enrique Cabrera -- is the first of many arts exhibits Larson hopes will draw people to the park.
“It is important for local artists and international artists,” added the sculpture’s artist Enrique Cabrera. “I am happy for the bull being in this spot. The people are super happy.”
The bull is Cabrera’s seventh one he’s created, and represents charging out of the pandemic into a new day.
“My intention is that people have contact with the piece,” added Cabrera.
The sculpture stands eight feet wide, 16 feet long and weighs 2,000 pounds. 
The exhibit will be up for two months.
