'Colorful Maximino' White Pucara Bull
Featuring hand-painted floral motifs and gold-colored accents, this white ceramic bull makes a cheerful decoration. Artisan Maribel Posso Olivares of Peru designs the figurine, combining both Spanish and Peruvian styles. She was inspired by the myth of the torito de Pucarà.

On its way up to be sacrificed, the bull resisted, piercing the side of a mountain with its horn, creating a flood of water from the mountainside that brought great joy to the village people.
