After being drawn to a Cattle's tooth, I decided to research the history of cattle and their relationships with humans. Initially appearing in Ancient Egypt, the cattle were regarded as symbols of fertility, and celestial bodies. Each leg representative of a pillar support the fabric of the universe. The cattle spread to the middle east, showing up in Persian and Babylonian imagery. Here we start to see cattle depicted with human traits, becoming less about fertility, but rather, strength and vitality. Today, the cow in the west has lost its cultural significance on a spiritual level. It has become more so a symbol of fertility as a means to consume. Conversely the cow still holds this symbolic permanence in many south and middle eastern cultures today. The process of creating this pattern and print is the result of comparing these various cultural practices centered around the cow.
