The old man and the Bull / Der alte Mann und der Stier / O velho e o Touro / El viejo y el Toro

The aesthetic of Bullfighting is based on the interaction of the man and the bull. Bullfighting is regarded as a demonstration of style, technique and courage by its participants.

According to Ernest Hemingway Bullfighting is the only art in which the artist is in danger of death and in which the degree of brilliance in the performance is left to the fighter’s honour.

Animal rights and animal welfare associations consider Bullfighting a cruel, barbaric blood sport in which the bull suffers severe stress, and may ultimately end in a slow, torturous death.

The practice is a cowardly, a sadistic tradition of torturing and humiliating.
