Why does the
Harappan culture- one of the oldest civilizations on earth choose the Bull as
one of the prominent symbols to convey its beliefs? Or, why did Shiva choose
Nandi, a bull to be his vahana (mount)? What is it in this well-known animal,
that not just Indian culture but many other countries around the world see as a
powerful and potent totem?
The explanations are many, but what we know from all of them is that the bull is one animal that is used over and over again to convey ideas such as virility, strength, power, aggression, and good health. This brass bull head statue is an attractive visualization of the powers of a bull. The majestic horns decorated with inlay pieces look imposing. As for the rest of the statue, the contrast created by the yellowish tones of brass alongside the vibrant inlay work done using red, blue, and green recreate the vigour that is in the nature of the bull. Ears raising upward, eyes encircled by bright red inlay and a line of golden teeth tell the story of the artist’s dedication to highlighting all the features of a bull in the best possible manner. Bringer of good luck, vitality and financial success, this fine brass bull head has both us and the Vastu experts charmed.
