Starting with a triangle - a figure strongly related to either Christian or pagan religious beliefs, we obtained three animals important for Sardinian culture and nature: bull, seal and mouflon.
Equilateral triangles contain the four classical elements; with an angle directed up they symbolize fire and become symbols of air when crossed by a horizontal line; similarly, when an angle is directed downward, the triangles are symbols of water and develop into signs of mother Earth when crossed by a horizontal line.
* This is a limited collection of 50 and the last pieces are available exclusively in our Etsy store.
* Our bulls are made in terracotta and finished with a double-color airbrush painting reminding leather and fixed using a cloth soaked with liquid wax. Available also in glazed version with double firing at 950°C. Slight differences in color and form may result from the handmade nature of this item.
