THE OSBORNE BULL
THE Osborne bull started out as an advertising logo for brandy, and has now become a Spanish icon with nearly 100 large silhouette bulls dotted across Spain.
The figure was the work of Cadiz designer Manolo Prieto who created the image in 1957 and a few years later the bulls began to be located next to the Spanish roads.
The one next to the N332 in Tavernes de la Valldigna was blown down by heavy winds after it had been apparently sabotaged by a radical group called Arran, who even posted a video of men attacking the large structure the night before the storms were forecast.
Previous to that, this particular bull has been sabotaged three other times, purportedly by the same organisation and a further time was torn down by a strong gale.
Osborne’s have now confirmed that the bull will be replaced, yet again, in the same position, as soon as the weather improves sufficiently for them to start work.
