Due to its virility, power and regal presence, the Bull has been an icon for worship in many ancient cultures. The Bull was considered a sacred animal in ancient Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome and Egypt to name a few. It is common to see the Bull offered as a blood sacrifice in these cultures. 

In Celtic culture the Bull symbolizes a variety of things, as it was a very prominent animal in the clan. 

Bulls presented physical strength and power. To the Celtic way of thought, the Bull was also extremely virile, therefore, symbolizing fertility and the power to procreate. Druids associated the Bull with solar energy and the female cow with earth energy. The Bull was also a symbol of great luxury, wealth and provision for later Celts.
