This bronze sculpture beautifully captures the distinctive characteristics of Zebu, also known as humped cattle or Brahmin cattle. Originating in South Asia, particularly the Indian subcontinent, Zebu are recognized by their fatty hump on the shoulders, drooping ears, and a large dewlap. Highly adapted to high temperatures, they are farmed in tropical countries both as pure Zebu and as hybrids with taurine cattle, the other main type of domestic cattle. The sculpture depicts the Zebu in a lifelike manner, showcasing its unique features and the resilience that allows it to thrive in various climates. Zebu serve multiple purposes, including as draught oxen, dairy cattle, and beef cattle. They are also valuable for byproducts such as hides, dung for fuel, and manure. Crafted using the age-old method of lost-wax casting, this sculpture is a 100% bronze creation, ensuring durability and authenticity. The brown patina finish adds depth and character to the piece, emphasizing the details of the Zebu. Mounted on a marble base, along with a detailed bronze plinth, the sculpture becomes a harmonious composition of art and nature. The inclusion of the artist Juno's signature adds a personal touch and authenticates the craftsmanship behind this exquisite creation. Whether displayed as a standalone piece or as part of a collection celebrating the diversity of domestic animals, this Zebu sculpture invites viewers to appreciate the beauty and significance of these unique creatures in the agricultural landscape.
