Seller: artemisgallerylive (36) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263839702799 LOT 11CSeller's Estimate: USD 1,000 - 1,500 Ancient Greece, ca. 6th century BCE. A wonderful hollow-cast zoomorphic terracotta votive figure in the form of a horned bull, formed using a bivalve mold. The animal is rendered quite naturalistically, depicting almond-shaped eyes, a prominent snout, a wavy dewlap, and a rotund body, all while standing upon four hooved legs. This votive model would have been left at an altar or temple, perhaps as a plea to the gods for plentiful harvests, increased strength and virility, or simply for a beloved pet bull that had fallen ill. The hollow interior may have at one point contained papyrus fragments with simple written prayers. Size: 4.75" L x 3.25" H (12.1 cm x 8.3 cm).
