The spelling of this piece may be wrong, but this brown-toned assemblage of a lance-carrying picador is right on target. Even the horse – wire mesh to protect its hide from the horns of the bull; noble neck and head of sharp-edged tin of a pull tab strip once common for opening cans; and pre-cooked spaghetti pasta to accentuate the strong muscles of the legs.

Have your say
