Thepiece is decorated with a cruciform effigy internally, with geometric and angular motif around, rendered in black and umber. In between the looped handles on each side are pairs of large pointed horns, perhaps indicating a ceremonialfunction. Many cultures, including theGreeks, revered bulls for their strength and virility.
