There are 1 objects for which Decoration contains "charging"
2007.10.2.304 A male figure wearing a skin (possibly a lion skin) struggles with a bull. The bull's head is lowered perhaps indicating that it is charging. Behind the bull, to the right of the cast, there is what appears to be a statue (possibly of female form) with two faces in profile, one facing left and the other right. The animal skin (if it is lion) perhaps identifies the male as Herakles. The scene might be a representation of one of Herakles tasks (yoking of the bulls).
