It is a portrait of a bull with a moon in its horns. Thus in ancient Egypt depicted the god Apis. In Egyptian mythology, Apis or Hapis is a sacred bull, god of the moon, fertility and prosperity.
The picture is painted with a metallic tempera, so there is a litmus effect and the picture shimmers under the rays of light. Crescent of the horns are made with a texture paste, covered with tempera and silver potal. The whole picture is covered with acrylic matte-satin varnish.
In the "Me at work" section you can see a short video with more details.
