Physical description

Night-time storm scene showing a man grabbing hold of the horn of a charging bull. There are three other cattle rampaging in the background. The man is wearing a simple shirt, trousers and sandles and is holding what appears to be a metal pot on his head. The image was framed by a single white line but, as a result of the sheet being trimmed, only the bottom line is visible.
