The Spoils.

Only when a torero performed especially well, and only with the crowd's approval, the president of the bullring will wave a white kerchief in appreciation. This is the sign for the torero's assistant to cut off the bull's ear as a reward.

Hard to see, but in the his left hand this fighter is holding the bloody stump of an ear in triumph. In a moment he will toss it into to the crowd in appreciation for their cheers.

I did not catch it.
