SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
The bull’s head rhyton is one of the most important examples of Minoan stonework. Its form depicts the sacred animal of the Minoan religion, the bull. Its horns were not found, which makes archaeologists speculate as to whether these were wooden and gold-plated. Heraklion Archaeological Museum
