This painting is a tribute to Spanish Bullfighting.

Clues to "read" this artwork:

- there are a bull and a banderillero in the right top corner (white square);

- there is another bull (middle part from centre to the bottom round black oval);

- a matador (black colour hat and shoulders) holding a muleta (red colour patches);

- a wounded bullfighter (red patterns inside of bull's oval). He kneels (leg is in black and red patterns in the right bottom corner) and bends forward (his head is in the middle of the oval).

There is a lot of other stuff to find. Let's try it!

About Bullfighting:

Bullfighting is a physical contest that involves a bullfighter and animals attempting to subdue, immobilize, or kill a bull, usually according to a set of rules.

Spanish-style Bullfighting is called corrida de toros. In the traditional corrida, three matadores each fight two bulls, each of which is between four and six years old and weighs no less than 460 kg (1,014 lb). Each matador has six assistants: two picadores (lancers on horseback) mounted on horseback, three banderilleros – who, along with the matadors, are collectively known as toreros (bullfighters) – and a mozo de espadas (sword page). Collectively they comprise a cuadrilla (entourage). In Spanish, the more general torero or diestro (literally 'right-hander') is used for the lead fighter, and only when needed to distinguish a man is the full title matador de toros used; in English, "matador" is generally used for the bullfighter.
