The bull, is of significance in many ancient cultures. In Buddhism, The Bull represents "desire" during the life of the Buddha as a prince. Amongst the Jains The bull is the emblem of Adinath, the first Jain tirthankara. In Greek mythology it is a symbol of male sexuality, illustrated by Zeus, in the form of a white bull, unrelentingly pursuing Europa.
In this work the Dumru, represented within the Shiva symbol of the Lingam, is significant in the mythology and character of the God. It was the rhythm of the Dumru to which Shiva began his dance of creation of the world, in the nothingness, endless void of space. Interestingly the Dumru is also believed to symbolise and represent the Far Eastern Asian concept of the Ying and the Yang of creation wherein the shape of the Dumru symbolises the alliance between the two complimentary forces of co-creation in the universe...the Divine Feminine (Yin) where the downward representation symbolizes the Yoni)and the Divine Masculine (Yang). or the male portion of the Damaru which symbolizes the Lingam. Hence, the creation of the world begins when the lingam and yoni meets at the mid-point of the Damaru, and the destruction takes place when both separate from each other.
