From the earliest historical times bulls have been regarded as a symbol of strength and masculinity and often as an embodiment of Royal power and might. In ancient Egypt a number of bulls enjoyed special status as ‘sacred animals’, notably the Apis and Buchis bulls which were interred in catacombs at the pyramid complex of Saqqara and at Armant.
