Shepherd and wild boar

Shepherd protecting a lamb by shooting a stone from a slingshot at a wild boar.

According to Diklah Zohar, the detail of the slingshot does not appear on other mosaic floors in relation to shepherds, which produces an association with the biblical David as young shepherd, who used the slingshot to kill Goliat.
