Stylish Horse Race by Victor Hicks

Spanish Bullfighting - (card 2 of 3) Featured Print

Spanish Bullfighting - (card 2 of 3)

Spanish Bullfighting scene - In the final stage, the 'tercio de muerte', a matador re-enters the ring alone with a small red cape (muleta) and a sword. The matador uses his cape to attract the bull in a series of passes, demonstrating his control over it by getting especially close. The 'faena' (literally 'job') is the entire performance with the muleta, which is usually broken down into 'tandas' or 'series'. The faena ends with a final series of passes in which the matador with a muleta attempts to manoeuver the bull into a position to stab it between the shoulder blades and through the aorta or heart. The act of thrusting the sword is called an 'estocada'.
