the bull

replica ancient Greek bronze bull and oxen sculptures  from It's All Greek London and online

The bull played a particularly prominent role in the Minoan culture of ancient Crete, where it was associated with Poseidon, the elemental god of the sea. Bull heads and horns were used as symbols in the palace at Knossos – the largest Bronze Age site on the island. The Minoans represented the bull in their sculpture and frescoes.

In Homer's Iliad, heroes are frequently compared with bulls when engaged in furious combat. The bull is a symbol of virility, strength and dominance.

Our representations of the bull range from the Minoan bull-leaping fresco to exquisite bronze bull’s heads and miniature bronze bulls.
