Le grand mariage
Dancers evade the horns of a charging bull in a public square in front of the old sultan's palace during a wedding celebration on the island of Ndzwani in the Comoros archipelago. The Comoros, which were known by early mariners as the Islands of the Moon, developed a rich and unique culture thanks to centuries as an important staging post in the maritime trade of the Indian Ocean. It is particularly famed for its tradition of extravagant weddings, known as "le grand mariage", which can last for weeks and cost tens of thousands of euros. Events such as public bullfights are common during such celebrations. In Comoros, the sport differs from bullfighting in the hispanic world in one key regard - the bull is not harmed, and is returned to its ranch after each event.
