1888's Take: The circle of life tells us that what dies must live to see a new life again. This circle cannot be bent, distorted, or broken... Its strength in design as well as conception is too powerful to bear the reins of indefinite destruction.
~Bull, Long Horn~
I remember my first job working on a beef farm…the powerful bulls snorting in the cold morning air…their long horns like great dawn sabers…ready…stoic…solid…yet with the great beating of a warm and kind mammal heart resonating its low rhythms to the pasture below, the sky above and its herd to the sides. Let us never forget the respect that such animals deserve for their gifts and sacrifices to humankind.
Because of its virility, power, & regal presence, the bull has been a symbol of divine power, agriculture, sport & respect in many cultures.
This beautifully natural and oceanic material is known to help promote transformation and well-being.
~Circle / Ring~
A symbol of the never-ending, eternal & connectedness between all things.
