bossy gold


Senior Member
And each day the sound of her voice became sweeter to his ears. So sweet was her voice that he forgot his nets and his cunning, and had no care of his craft. Vermilion-finned and with eyes of bossy gold, the tunnies went by in shoals, but he heeded them not. His spear lay by his side unused, and his baskets of plaited osier were empty.

Oscar Wilde's The Fisherman and His Soul

Does 'eyes of bossy gold' means 'bulging golden eyes'?

Please help. Thank you.
