Cattle 5 (18 of 36)
I plan to do it on my inner forearm, the shoulders and base of the neck framing where my biceps and forearm meet, with the head aimed back at my hand. I am going to redraw the horns so they are hooked instead of stupid. The points of the hooks are going to touch the ulna and radius where they bulge out at the wrist.
I’ve been digressing on cave style paintings of cattle and animals for awhile now, and I followed a bunch around in Thailand to get a better look at the source material. It was interesting to later learn that the water buffalo has a role in the cultural legend here. He is a protector of life in some stories and does things like gore legendary serpents that can poison entire rivers. At other times, he plays a sexually mischievous role in the way that giant bulls can in Greek-like dramas, seducing goddesses out of turn and such and drawing horrible rebukes from Zeus like super deities.
