Spain - Balearic Islands - Mallorca (3)

Ctra. Palma-Manacor, Km.24 - Mallorca.

A very popular sight known as "El Toro Osborne" in Majorca.

The third of the eight postcards sent by Gerard from Majorca.

This is from Wikipedia : The Osborne bull (in Spanish: Toro de Osborne) is a 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 Felix Tejada.
