Zeus, who turned himself into a bull, here shown as a bull musk-ox, is carrying off an obviously willing Eskimo Europa wearing mukluks and sealskin pants and a kuspuk (Parka cover) of polka-dot, rickrack trimmed cotton. When Zeus resumed his own form he put the bull in the sky.


Taurus people are reliable and practical. They are very strong willed and determined. They are warm-hearted, affectionate friends and lovers and their strong sense of values make them solid citizens in every sense of the word. They do love luxury and fine food and are very firmly attached to what is theirs though this does not interfere with their generosity.
