This powerful image brings good fortune, prosperity, protection, happiness and fertility for the families who inhabit that house. Originally made in the area of Pucará, at the north of Puno, these small figures have become a symbol of contemporary Peruvian culture and they usually been given like a present for extra luck.
The Spanish brought bulls to Peru during their conquest; these animals quickly became part of indigenous Inca culture. One of the legends tells they included the bull in a ritual ceremony celebrating the payment to the mother earth, the animal was painted, adorned and very upset because they put something spice on his nose, making him a madness and powerful bull trying to lick his face. This imagine of a very brave bull, was taking by several communities responsible for making pottery for the conquistadors, for their special care in their work, one of these communities were the Chepa Pupuja, they began to make them to maintain a magic-religious culture, who automatically adopted this symbol as Protection, Happiness and Fertility in their homes.
