Anyone who goes to see the Altamira cave paintings in northern Spain will note the presence of a figure that looks tranquil in some poses and aggressive in others.

These images depict—dating back to some 1, years ago—the ancestors of the protagonists of bullfighting. According to some historians, the Roman conquerors brought their circus celebrations to Spain 23 centuries ago.

These public spectacles quite often could be cruel. The genesis of bullfights can be traced back to these events, which immediately became hugely popular. Seven centuries later, the painter Francisco de Goya depicted this scene in one of his drawings. The poetry of the Siglo de Oro—the Spanish Golden Age that spans the 16th and 17th centuries—frequently makes reference to kings who confronted bulls, and celebrations that were only complete if they were accompanied by the threat of angry bulls.

The bullfighter must make the bull respond to the orders of the piece of cloth, to have it run at a specified speed and bow its head to facilitate its death by sword, all before half an hour has gone by.

Spanish bullfighting fans do not permit this spectacle to be called a sport; for them, it is an art. Indeed, fans like to compare bullfighting to ballet. For them, the blood in a bullfight is only an inevitable accident.

What is at stake in this game is more than just blood: it is life and death. For centuries, bullfighting was a form of combat in which a horseback rider attacked a bull with spears. But, the story goes, at the beginning of the 18th century, a man by the name of Francisco Romero got off his horse, took up a cape and a sword and confronted the bull, face-to-face, body-to-body, inch-by-inch in a battle to the death and in clearly disadvantageous conditions.

Orson Welles is buried there. And it was there that the Romero family established bullfighting as it is known today. From then until now—for almost years—bulls have evolved a lot more than bullfighters. Everywhere, even in Switzerland, there are bulls that charge if provoked. But the bull used for bullfights is different. It is the product of dozens of generations in which the crossbreeding of races and breeds has produced a hefty animal with sharp horns and irrepressible fierceness that charges at human beings because the instinct has now been genetically inscribed.

Bulls nowadays know no cowardice; they become more and more aggressive the more they are hurt and they keep on attacking until the last moment of their lives. These specimens are not sold at an ordinary cattle market. In other spots on the planet, one can find temperamental bulls how about the the irascible bucks of North American rodeos?

But not fierce bulls. Thus the crucial paradox that surrounds the debate about whether to ban bullfights or tolerate them: if fierce bulls were banned from fighting to protect them from death by sword-thrusting, this race of bulls would disappear. Unlike many sports that attract crowds, it was not born in a palace garden nor in club meetings. It was born in the grassroots, in the poverty of peasant festivities and patron saint celebrations.

The bulls have lived in the Spanish soul from even before Spain existed. They are integrated in its language; they are a unique symbol and awaken a curious and ancient passion.

In many ways, the bullfights represent a religious metaphor that, like the Christian mass, demands a central sacrifice, consecrated priests, some ceremonial garments, some secular rites, the offering of a victim and an atmosphere shrouded by death. But, unlike in most religions, the priest puts his life at risk in the ritual of sacrifice.

That is, one every semester. Nevertheless, many famous bullfighters have lost their lives in the rings. When he was mortally wounded in the small Spanish city of Linares in , there was international consternation. It was as if Muhammad Ali had died from a right hook in the boxing ring. Manolete was 30 years old. Unlike many other animals who unavoidably must die in the service of humankind, the bullfighting bull, if it is fierce enough, is pardoned its life and returns to the countryside as a stud bull.

Not bad…. During several centuries, bullfights were staged in almost all the Spanish-speaking countries of Latin America. Argentina and Uruguay, famous for their cattle, also had bullfight rings, and some bullfighters met death in Montevideo. For about 20 to 30 years now, bullfighting has faced two great enemies: the high price of the spectacle and the opposition of increasingly aggressive anti-bullfighting groups—many of them animal rights groups.

As it happens, billboards are prohibited on Spanish highways—except for one featuring a defiant bull. After the flag, it is the best-known symbol, in a land where the king is the most enthusiastic bullfighting fan. See also: Sports.
