As flies to wonton boys, are we to the Gods; they kill us for their sport
William Shakespeare

Miguel Baez Espuny "el Litri"
The Valiant  Gnome

Known as "el Litri" Miguel Baez Espuny, Matador and stockbreeder,  is considered one of the most outstanding figures in Spanish bullfighting

Incredulity and cynicism in the nine-dollar seats which are nearest  and best

Before the bull enters, when the glitter of costume and cape is still social ...

Luis Miguel Dominguin, Numero Uno of living matadors, kneels before a dominated bull in an "adornment."

A high-horned chomping bull, and the matador momentarily gives ground

Luis Miguel Dominguin conquered bulls all over Spain, Portugal and Columbia through the 1940's and 1950's. He is also know for conquering the hearts of film star Ava Gardner and fashion model China Machado. Never without a beautiful woman on is arm, Dominguin enjoyed his reputation as one of the world's for-most playboys.
