Artist's Description

The Osborne’s bull is a 14 metre 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 Felix Tejada.

The Osborne sherry company erected large images of bulls starting in 1956, in black with the maker’s name, as advertising boardings on sites near to major roads throughout Spain. The original image was smaller and in a slightly different design. It got bigger as a law barred publicity within 150 meters of a road.
