A charming red bull tells the story of the torito de Pucará, a bull that was to be sacrificed by the people of Pucara in order to bring much-needed rain. However, the bull resisted, using its horn to pierce the side of a mountain, bringing a flood of water that pleased the people of Pucara. Maribel Posso Olivares draws inspiration from that myth, crafting this ceramic figurine in the characteristic style of Pupuja, painting the red bull by hand with metallic-colored accents and multicolored floral motifs.
