Description
Since the dawn of civilization, since man first began to paint on the wall of caves, the bull has been a symbol of godly strength and power. This splendid rendering captures the proud essence of the animal: alert, muscular, a little dangerous even in repose. With holes for long-vanished wheels, this piece would have been a votive from some ancient individual who sought to attract the attention of the gods with the most pleasing gift possible. - (PF.0130)
