Sculpture Vigoroso the bull by Fons van Dommelen

Sculpture Vigoroso the bull

This colourful sculpture portrays a bull in motion. Bulls can be found on pre-historic cave paintings, they are part of the zodiac (as Taurus), commonly appear on heraldy and play a role in numerous mythologies, cultures and religions, such as Nandi in Hinduism. They usually signify fertility, strength and energy, and this is underpinned in this sculpture by form and colour.
The bull stands on a pedestal inscribed with ISETOP EREDEC NON EREDAC SITROF (which, if read backwards, means in Latin: Fortis cadere non cedere potest – The brave may fall, but cannot yield), a motto on the Coat of Arms of the Fahnestock Family and of the Palmetto Guard of Charleston, South Carolina. The Latin phrase reinforces the strength of the bull as being brave, not avoiding any trouble.

Fons van Dommelen (*1964 in the Netherlands), the sculptor, has created a figure that combines various traditions and genres in representing strength. His colourful execution is reminiscent of graffiti art sculptures and of the energetic patterns of a Niki de Saint Phalle.
