Description
Since man first began to draw on cave walls, the bull has been an object of veneration and admiration. Throughout history this noble animal has been a favored offering to the most powerful of gods, or even worshipped as a god itself. In this small votive amulet, the artist has captured the muscular beauty of the creature, shown him proud, a little defiant, made him into a worthy gift that should bring much favor. - (Z.0025)
