Material:Bronze & Stainless Steel

Torso of the famous bullfighter Manuel Rodriguez, known as Manolete. Berrocal made 10,000 from 1975 to 1977. Of these, 6 were in gold, 1,000 in silver and the remainder in bronze. Manolete is the last torso of this style made and is one of the best. Manolete can still be found in galleries. Note how the external appearance gives no clue to the internal complexity. Sequential assembly is required.
