Description
Though sculpted on a miniature scale, this exquisite pendant captures the timeless strength and power of the bull. Since the dawn of civilization, this might animal was worshiped as a God, and offered as the ultimate gift to gain the favor of a deity. This little gold amulet may have been worn as a religious symbol, perhaps by a follower to the Egyptian Apis cult. After the passage of centuries, its exact meaning has been lost, even as its elegant beauty continues to work its powerful spell. - (FJ.0444)
