A horned bull with its legs tucked under it reclines on the ground. Facing us and leaning against the bull's flank is a partially draped, seated woman. Her powerful folded legs and upper torso hint that perhaps she is a heroic figure. Both figures are rendered in great swaths of ink and line. (Monica Jensen 02/09/93)
