Spanish crop

This whip is a "bull´s pizzle". Although as heavy as its German companions, it is mainly used as a riding crop. Note the different construction: while the standard bull´s p. is twisted and dried, the Spanish pattern is bound with twine (in spirals) to gain flexibility. After being dried, the twine is removed and some lacquer applied.
