The Bull – Second sign

Reliable, stoic and practical, Taurus is first of the earth signs. They are hard workers, grounded and realistic, harvesting the fruits of labour and enjoying the pleasures of the material world. Stable and conservative, Taurus can sometimes incline towards stubbornness and obstinacy once their mind is made up. I have chosen to portray Taurus with that sturdy, uncompromising attitude with her hair suggestive of the bull-horns. Showing her compulsion for material riches, wealth and hedonism, I have referenced gypsy-style jewellery with coins, as well as furs and the fine carving on the bull skull. The astrological symbol for Taurus rests on her forehead as part of her jewelled headdress and of course she has a nose-ring.
