Holy Kitsch! Mexican faience wares display streams of influence on traditional earthenware in Mexico. With the importation of glazed ceramics displaying Moorish/African Chinese Roman and Dutch influences new techniques were absorbed into the ancient arts and crafts movement of Mexico a result being these spectacular tin glazed ceramics.
The artisans in Mexico still sieve mix and knead their own clays and now use non-toxic glazes. This beautiful ware is a fantastic homage to herds that were moved by the indigenous across the vast plains of North Mexico and Southern USA once a part of Mexico. This is an ethical ware.
Bulls and oxen are often depicted by Western and Eastern artists being about masculinity and inner turmoil. Bulls in engravings/paintings/brushworks can be a dark and beastly presence used as metaphor for all manner of situations you could write a tome about the depictions of cattle and bulls in art.
Each bull's head is a different pattern as the patterns are created freehand by the artists utilising a collage way of seeing creating a design with vibrance and difference to match any decor.
Please be advised at times horns come with fractures though minor and barely visible, they are extremely difficult to transport.
