During the faena, the matador guides the bull with the muleta, a red cloth, hanging on a stick and the sword.
During the first part of this phase the matador shows his ?skills? to guide the bull, make him fight in rhythm, make him build a sort of a death choregraphy; if it is good, the music plays. At the beginning, the bull is still strong and runs fast, jumps, charges quickly (first pictures), then he goes slower, the matador makes figures sometimes kneeing (picture 4) and makes him turn around him, slowly, almost quiet and peaceful (picture 5).
The bull fighting for nothing, gets soon exhausted and then comes the last part of the faena, the death of the bull (next tip).
