I'm sure those are important considerations, those flails that shepherd/fertility Gods carried were to knock down fruit from trees such as figs upon
which the livestock as well as the people depended.
Sometimes the tree is represented by a single leaf and seen upon the mountain of the horizon, the place were the sun rises or sets, and so was also
associated with cosmic axis.
If one considers an Indus valley representation of the single leaf symbolism there it is colour coded black-red-white, indicating the basic Tripartite
religious belief of nutrients of life rising up from below, the life blood of the terrestrial plane, and the connection to the Celestial, so i always
try to maintain those aspects, that there is more to this than the mundane.

The case i'm making here is for continuity of tradition from the core Neolithic region, Gobekli Tepe, whether found to the East in later Indus valley
culture, or to the West upon Malta, both can trace their roots to it and the Minoan culture is no different deriving from an early expansion into the
Mediterranean from Anatolia, so yes not surprisingly they had the bull cult.
