A winged bull with a fine white coat walks proudly toward the right. With its head drawn into its neck and stiff-legged walking gait, the bull's body is animated by the movement of its raised tail. The Winged Bull is a Belgian made fine art jacquard wall tapestry. This image originally decorated the walls of the palace built by Darius I (549-486 BCE) at Susa. His palace was inspired by that of King Nebuchadnezzar's Ishtar Gate in Babylon. The Susian bull, an image of strength and power, protection and defense, personifies the royal authority. The bull figure has also been found in the stone reliefs at Persepolis, with or without wings, also shown in action, in confrontation with a lion. Bring the beauty of ancient art into your life with this finely crafted tapestry.
