Physical description

Small decorative bull, thick at neck, with curved horns on top of the head and triangular ears pointing to the sides. Figure has round, raised spoke decorations in the centre of its forehead and on both cheeks and shoulders. Two serrated bands run sideways on its neck, and 6 rings hang from the chest. The tail curls around itself, resting on the lower back of the bull, and ends in a large tuft. The body is painted with reddish brown lines in triangles and waves, and splotches of yellow glaze cover some of the decorated areas as well as the face and spots on the torso. 2 handles are incorporated into the figure, one on the top of the head between the horns, and one on the centre back. A hole is found in the centre back behind the handle.
