    Bullfighting - Bullfighting - Bullfighting and the arts: It is highly probable that artistic renderings of bulls arose nearly simultaneously with art itself. Excavations at Çatalhüyük in Anatolia, a site dating to – bce, have uncovered temples adorned with bull heads as well as furniture and pillars composed of stylized bull horns. The main bullfighter is called the matador. Aided by a group of assistants, called the cuadrilla, the matador goads the bull into charging at him. A bullfight is relentless. If a matador is injured, another replaces him, and the matador normally kills the bull at the end of each match.
