More Bulls..

I am going through references of the Bull in Indian mythology.

These doodles are an exploration for a celestial bull called ‘Jatavedas’ with thousand horns and it is also ascribed to have hair of flames. This a representation of God ‘Agni’ the god of fire.

Fire is nothing but the energy, the energy with which our own biological system and the universal system is functioning.

The bull being symbol of power and energy thus forms the basis of the imagery of ‘Jatavedas’.

The Sun god is also addressed as the bull since it is that energy with which the earth (the cow)replenishes itself.

In simple terms sun evaporates the water forming clouds and thus brings rain enriching the land.

Therefore bull is a symbol of fertility, the male energy or the energy of procreation.

Here is a partial view of the painting just completed.
