About "God Mithras slaying a bull" artclone

The figure depicted is the God Mithras in the act of slaying a bull, which is a central iconography in the “Mithraic mysteries”, one of the sacred cults among the Imperial Roman army from the 1st to the 4th century CE. This particular scene is commonly referred to as "tauroctony" and is a symbolic representation often found in Mithraic temples, although the exact meaning of this act is subject to interpretation due to the secretive nature of the cult and the lack of written records from practitioners themselves. The original from the Archaeological Museum of Ostia Antica signifies the widespread practice and influence of the Mithraic religion among Roman soldiers and traders, as Ostia was Rome's harbor city and a place where many cultures and religions intersected.

The statue features Mithras kneeling on the bull's back, with his left knee pressed into the animal's side. He pulls back the bull's head with his left hand, preparing to deliver the death blow with a dagger in his right hand. Mithras is often depicted wearing a Phrygian cap, which in time has broken off from the original sculpture, exposing curly hair. The bull's tensed muscles and Mithras’s drapery indicate movement, giving the statue a dynamic appearance.

Displaying an artclone of the "Roman god Mithras slaying the bull" in a modern setting can be a statement of aesthetic appreciation. Placing the statue in a lobby or entrance of a private home, where it's one of the first things seen by visitors, would be a stunning design choice.
