Description
With bold, forceful lines, the artist has sketched the muscular form of a horned bull. Throughout the ancient world, since the days when man lived by hunting, the bull has been worshipped as a god, or a gift worthy of the most powerful deities. This terracotta votive, which captures the very essence of the animal, must once have been such an offering from a person unknown to a god now equally forgotten by time. - (PF.0166)
