For thousands of years, mortals offered gifts to their gods in hopes of receiving their benevolent blessings. For male deities, the most magnificent sacrifice was the bull, symbolic of strength, virility, and power. This bronze Zebu, the humped ox among the first animals domesticated by man, was surely meant to stand in place of a living animal. With great simplicity, the ancient artist has captured the essence of the beast. As we hold it today, we cannot help but wonder if the prayers of the ancient votary were heard and answered. - (FZ.229)Bronze Sculpture of a Zebu Bull - FZ.229Origin: Central Asia Circa: 1200 BC to700BCDimensions:2.25"(5.7cm)highx1.25"(3.2cm)wollection: Near Eastern Style: Iron Age Medium:ronze
