This work explores the relationship between many minority cultures and mysticism. Different kinds of mythical beasts appear in many mythological stories, and the image of the bull-headed monster appears under different names in the legends as well as myths of various countries. The first inspiration for the work was the nightmare of a bad boy: “Krampus”, originating from Norse mythology. His image is that of a half-human, half-bull-headed beast, which is a stern guardian deity. In Tibetan culture, the bull's head and horns are sacred object that blesses peace and shows respect.
