SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
The bull’s head rhyton is one of the most exuberant examples of Minoan stonework. Its form depicts the sacred animal of the Minoan religion, the bull. Its horns were not found, and archaeologists speculate that they must have been wooden and gold plated. Heraklion Archaeological Museum
