About the painting

The painting depicts a family of 4 (father, mother, child and baby) riding on the back of a large black and white bull. The family is dressed up and traveling to an unknown destination. There are mountains and Zulu huts in the background.

The father supports and protects his family

The father supports and protects his family, and in turn, the person who is being protected and supported protects and supports the next family member.

Cows represent wealth

In Zulu culture cows represent wealth and the artist is alluding to the fact that the man’s wealth is his family.
