To protect a cowboy from being mauled by a bull when the cowboy bucks off or jumps off at the end of his ride, a rodeo bullfighter dressed as a clown is employed to divert the bull’s attention and give the cowboy a chance to escape. Bullfighters need to be quick and agile with lots of nerve. This sculpture by Earl W. Bascom shows a bullfighter with an old umbrella which he uses as a decoy. They may look a bit funny in the arena, but rodeo bullfighters sure look good to a bull rider on the ground. The artist was a rodeo bullfighter during his rodeo career in the 1930s. Sculpted in 1973, patinaed and mounted on an oval-shaped beveled-edge black onyx and marble base. Limited Edition of 100.
