Exhibition "History of the Bull: from Altamira to Bullfighting
3.01.2021 20:34

For thousands of years, the bull and its image have played an important role in the cultural and religious
      life of people. Being the personification of indomitable power, fertility and prosperity in most cultures,
      the bull has been used by people not only as food and arable animal, but also as an object of worship.
      Petroglyphs found on the territory of France, Armenia, Italy, Spain, and Russia are evidence of this.
      The exhibition features reproductions of famous rock carvings from the caves of Altamira (Spain), Nio
      (France), Lascaux (France), and La Madeleine (France), Caucasian ritual and sacrificial vessels made of
      horn, antique bronze vessels, lithographs depicting mythological scenes, miniature sculptures of the
      ancient Egyptian sacred bull Apis and the sky goddess Hathor, Sumero-Akkadian Shed (bull with a
      human head), and Indian chromolithographs depicting the sacred Kamadhenu cows.
      Where: State Museum of the History of Religion at the address 14, Pochtamtskaya Street , St.
      When: from DECEMBER 25, 2020 to FEBRUARY 23, 2021
