Santa Maria Bullring on a January Sunday Afternoon

Bloodless bullfighting is a performing art in which the Toro Bravo, the brave bull, does not die. The matador instead reaches over the horns to grasp a bouquet of roses. This act is symbolic of having placed a sword in the bull for the kill. This matador shows the bouquet to the crowd at Santa Marie Bullring.
