The preserving of the bulls

By Andrew Keh – The New York Times. PAMPLONA, Spain — The joys and pleasures of bullfighting are fleeting, corporeal and often ambiguous. José Luis Martín Moro tries to materialize them, to preserve them forever. Martín Moro is a taxidermist, one of the best in all of Spain. He travels the country each summer taking inventory and seeking clients wherever bulls are ritualistically killed for entertainment. He has won acclaim for the hyper-realism of his creations, the way he imbues them with emotion. For the past two years, he has… Leer más The preserving of the bulls

FERIA DEL TORO: Ocho toreros históricos para recordar en San Fermín

Dicen que Pamplona es una plaza amable para torear, pero son muy pocos los toreros que han dejado huella en el ruedo. Por  Marina Pérez Ruiz. VICENTE BARRERA (VALENCIA, 1908-1956) Entre 1928 y 1939 Barrera actuó en la plaza de toros 17 veces. En 1932 hizo lo que nadie había hecho: lidió cinco toros en dos corridas y a todos los morlacos les cortó las dos orejas y rabo, incluso la pata al segundo toro del domingo día 10. Dio tres vueltas al ruedo. En los últimos cuatro años en los que estuvo se fue… Leer más FERIA DEL TORO: Ocho toreros históricos para recordar en San Fermín

San Fermín: Toros imponentes, respeto creciente

      Por Antonio Lorca. El nombre de esta feria no es baladí. El toro es el protagonista y eligen a conciencia a los más serios del campo. Imponentes, como los de ayer, del Conde de la Maza, de impresionante trapío, de una seriedad y un cuajo deslumbrantes. Y esta circunstancia hace que los toreros hagan el paseíllo con la mosca detrás de la oreja; máxime si, además, su comportamiento, como así fue, es áspero, brusco, deslucido y cuajado de dificultades. Se entiende, pues, que todos los actuantes, desde el… Leer más San Fermín: Toros imponentes, respeto creciente

Sanfermines: don’t believe all the bull

Don’t believe what they tell you. Most of it isn’t true. It’s all just marketing ploys, myths and not-so-ancient traditions that have been designed to lure in the tourists and get them to part with their money. Since we lack the sun and sand, we have had to come up with something to attract people to Pamplona… To begin with, we came up with San Fermín, the saint who the July fiestas are named after. There is no historical certainty that a Saint Fermin ever existed. Until the 12th century,… Leer más Sanfermines: don’t believe all the bull

Bullfighting under threat from Spain’s new Left-wing councils

By James Badock, Madrid The bullfighters of Spain may have finally met their match, as a tranche of newly elected Left-wing mayors eye the demise of one of the country’s grandest, but most controversial, traditions. A number of Spanish cities are now taking action to end the blood sport following last month’s local elections which left a host of small Leftist parties wielding power across the country. In Alicante, the Left-wing coalition council has proposed a referendum on bullfighting, a Socialist-led alliance is mulling a ban in Palma, Majorca, while… Leer más Bullfighting under threat from Spain’s new Left-wing councils
