THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
In classic art styles, the white bull is often used as a symbol of the Greek god, Zeus. Zeus was the King of Gods, sitting high above the rest of the demigods beneath him. Often used as a symbol of passion and strength, the image of the while bull in the White Bull painting asks the viewers to embody the principles and the personality of the Greek god to persevere through anything. He represents transformation and fulfillment as well, prompting the idea that one must stop at nothing to achieve their goals and they can be reminded of this each time they gaze upon this painting.
