Matte floral motifs with earthy tones are painted by hand on the surface of this ceramic figurine, depicting a saddled bull in black with metallic-colored horns and accents. The sculpture is presented by Peru's Maribel Posso Olivares, who draws her inspiration from the myth of the torito de Pucará, or Pucara bull, which brought water to the ancient village of Pucara by piercing the side of a mountain with its horn.
