"Bull". Sculpture miniature

The image's prototype is Zhigzhit Bayaskhalanov's large sculpture with the same name. The small plastic art saves th recognizable form of the original piece, the play of a line and air. The work's contour is clearly outkined, and the weight is lightened due to the empty space included in the composition.

The dominant part of the image is the magnificent horns. It expresses the power of the animal, which ancient people were worship for a long time. Threateningly towering horns and heaviness of looming frontal bone lead semlessly to the curve of the cheekbone, the soft slope of the nose and the jaw of the animal. The visual contrast makes the image more expressive. Due to the artist's interpretation, the bull symbolizes reliabillity and constance, supported by confidence in capability.
