I spotted this image of Pablo Picasso's 'Head of a Bull' on the internet yesterday. It got me thinking back to when I actually saw the piece of sculpture created by the great man in 1943. I've been racking my brain trying to think in which Picasso museum I saw it, was it Malaga, Barcelona or Paris? I can't remember and to be honest it doesn't really matter. What I do remember is seeing the sculpture for the first time and being fascinated by the simple genius of the piece. I'm not an expert on sculpture or indeed the works of Picasso but I do know that no other sculpture has ever stayed in my mind like this one. Some people, especially the Spanish, may view the masterpiece as a symbol of Spain but to me it symbolises the simple pleasure of riding a bike.
