For the form of the bull, with a similarly strong physique and undulating dewlap, see the protome on a silver rhyton from the Norbert Schimmel collection, now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, no. 109, in Aruz, Benzel and Evans, eds., Beyond Babylon, Art, Trade, and Diplomacy in the Second Millennium B.C. According to de Lapérouse (pp. 183-184, op. cit.), the Schimmel bull likely represents a dedication to the Storm God, the Hittite deity who was often associated with bulls. Its "body conveys a sense of robust corporeal power characteristic of Hittite art and contrasts with the earlier, more stylized depictions of bulls found at central Anatolian sites."
