I believe that if a much more modern seat and handlebar’s were used, then the apparent perspective of the Bull’s head wouldn’t have been as discernible. “The marvelous thing about bronze is that it can give the most heterogeneous objects such unity that it’s sometimes difficult to identify the elements…
