Bull. Brown patina. Horns, tail, and lower halves of hind legs have broken off and their stubs filed smooth. Heavily proportioned free-standing bull faces forward. Its fore and hind quarters are coarsely articulated. Open mouth is gashed; the eyes and ears are deep round holes. Lower halves of the front legs are thin cylinders turned up at the bottom and gashed to form cleft hooves. Cast solid.
