Since the dawn of time, the bull has represented power, strength and nobility. This splendid votive, unusually large, depicts a Zebu, the hump-backed bull common to Asian regions. At the height of the Hittite empire, it was offered as a gift to win the favor of the gods. A fierce warrior people, the Hittites worshiped deities for whom a bull was the ultimate sacrifice. As a tribute to masculine strength, it impresses us even today with its timeless aura of power. - (FZ.213)
