View of a tile representation of a bull.  Note particularly the colorful mane and hoofs.  This panel dates to the days of the Neo–Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II (605–562 B.C.—the conqueror of Jerusalem).  This, and the others, lined the processional way that led from the Ishtar Gate to the sanctuary where the New Years Festival was held in the ancient city of Babylon (Iraq)!
