The traditions and cultures around me have always inspired me. Now what caught my attention is MATADOR: Matador has its own story, but it contains a new message for today's modern world, as 2021 is the Year of the Ox (bull) according to the Chinese zodiac. The "bull" symbolically represents career development, success in business, prosperity and health. As the world struggles with such a pandemic, I believe that the goodness of this animal will help people. In addition, we should not ignore that the bond between human, nature and animal is one of the most important values in the world. Matador photoshoot has ordered by Pegah Jewellery brand in Turkey.
