La Sombra del Toro

I just LOVE the Osborne Bulls. To me it is so representative of this beautiful and amazing country. Nothing I see says more effectively "This is Spain"!


From Wki:

The Osborne bull (in Spanish: Toro de Osborne) is an up to 14 meters high black silhouetted image of a bull in semi-profile, and is regarded as the unofficial national symbol of Spain. The bull was created in 1956 by Manolo Prieto. Nowadays the conservation of the bulls is handled by the family of Félix Tejada.
