Mithras and Sol cult image (replica)

The image represents the God Mithras of the regeneration of the Earth in conjunction with the undefeated Sun God Sol. Both Gods celebrate a joint meal. What a wall decoration for a dining room!

The original find dates from the first half of 2nd century and shows Mithras and Sol together at the cult meal sitting on a bull. We remember that the central motif on Mithras monuments and murals in Mithraea is Mithras killing the Bull. According to the mythology, Mithras has observed the animal, caught it and held it in a cave. There he sacrificed the bull to the renew the world. According to the tradition, the Earth and all life on Earth are regenerated through the blood and semen of Bull.

Sol is the Sun God of the Romans. Since the 2nd c. AD it is customarily known as Sol Invictus ('invincible God').
