Mythological world of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bik Garonja (Black Bull): old Bosniaks believed that the Earth rests on the back of a giant black bull. When the bull moves his ear then an earthquake takes place somewhere in the world, and on the day when the bull shudders the whole world will come to an end (Judgement day or Kiyamet). The tumult that is heard during the earthquake is believed to be the bulls bellow.
