Bulls are social animals and there is a hierarchy within each mob. If bulls are purchased from different mobs and put together they will very likely fight to sort out who’s “boss”. The constellation of the bull (Taurus) is in such a position as to welcome the sun's motion during the vernal equinox. Meaning, the constellation of Taurus corresponds to the motions of the spring in western astrology (May 14 to June 19). This also conjures symbolism of abundance, replenishment and subsidy as spring is a time when the earth experiences her renewal. Astrologically speaking the bull symbol is one-in-the-same with the Taurus (and the word Taurus means bull in Latin). Traits of the Taurean personality could be considered very "bull like" because these people can be incredibly powerful in both physical and spiritual presence. To be sure, a Taurus who has made his or her mind up will be unmovable.
In this work I hoped to capture the movement and grace of the sparring animals in a simple and unique style. In this traditional Turkish spectacle no animals are injured.
