Capodimonte Gold Ceramic Statuette ‘Taurus’


Availability: 1 in stock


The Capodimonte Taurus statuette is a beautiful ceramic figurine, part of the ‘Signs of the Zodiac’ collection, made in the early 20th century from Capodimonte ceramic painted in gold.
Capodimonte is a type of Italian porcelain first developed in the 18th century. It is known for its bright colours, intricate details and striking designs with flowers, animals or mythical figures. Its production requires incredible craftsmanship, as each piece must be hand-painted to create unique designs. For this reason, Capodimonte pieces are highly sought-after and valuable due to their rarity. Over the years, they have become a valuable part of many collections and are considered an important piece of Italian cultural history.
The base is spherical in shape, with a simply splendid gold surround. At the base of the feet is the zodiac sign represented by this statue: Taurus.
One leg is slightly forward of the other, entirely wrapped in a golden robe.
The bull is often represented by the wind because it symbolises strength, perseverance and determination. In many cultures, the bull is a symbol of fertility (partly because of its association with rain) and of the power of the wind to move things and change the environment. In Ancient Greece, for example, the bull was associated with Zeus, who was thought to control the weather. This link between the bull and the elements of nature makes it an enduring symbol of power and energy.
The statue is splendid and is suitable for collectors.
