A delightful statue regardless, Chantal.
Chantal Huijbregts: yes, photographically speaking it is
Barbaric "sport" but a great statue!
Chantal Huijbregts: I don't want to even call it Sports... it is horror to me

Great capture
Chantal Huijbregts: Thnkx
Nice shot of this sculpture, Chantal.
Chantal Huijbregts: thanks Jimi, met you at Facebook by the way
If nothing else this must be quite old being rusty like that.
Chantal Huijbregts: it was old, and weathered
He is rusting well. Nice shot Chantal
Chantal Huijbregts: he rusted pretty much all over
Is a "banderillero". The bullfighter (matador) has several assistants (subalternos) in charge of making the work less lucid. The "banderillas" is a work for assistants, although sometimes the matador wants them.
In Spain, "Las corridas de toros" do not have the status of sport, has the category of entertainment. I would say is a legacy of Roman times. A barbaric spectacle, no doubt. I fully understand you do not like the suffering of the animal is very unpleasant, but the reason the show is another. As I do not like seeing animals suffer.
He looks a little rusty smile
oh ! amazing one !
