The bull's head over the fireplace

I took this picture in Brittany, I cannot remember where exactly. It was one of these farms for tourists. It was not great, but there was this stuffed bull's head over a fireplace. Not that the fireplace could be used: it was quite hot that day. But I thought the head looked very impressive. Not as cool as a stag's head like the epic one at my parent's place, but cool enough. Sadly I took the photo way too far from the head, so you cannot the details, but you have a good idea of the size of the horns. Unlike Pat the Giant, I don't know if this bull had a name and a history. But he sure looks like a bit of a giant himself, although maybe it is due to the perspective and the setting. In any case I love this fireplace and its bull's head.
