History[ edit ] The origins of the bullwhip are also a matter for debate and, given the perishable nature of leather, are likely to remain so. Difficulties in tracing its development also arise from regional and national variations in nomenclature. There are claims that it was developed in South America where, like “cow-whips” during the slave trade, it was used as a weapon, or that it arrived there from Spain, but Roman mosaics  and earthenware  dating to around the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD show what appear to be tapered drop-lash whips, rather than the two-piece whips often associated with the Romans and other ancient cultures. Given that the same basic design appears in several primary sources, it seems likely that this is not a stylistic coincidence but a depiction of a design of whip in current use at the time the articles were made. By the middle of the 20th century, bullwhip making was a dying craft, with only a few craftsmen left making good quality whips. In the later half of the 20th century, attempts to preserve traditional crafts, along with a resurgence of interest in Western performance arts and the release of films such as Devo’s “Whip It” video and the motion pictures Raiders of the Lost Ark and its sequels in which the hero, Indiana Jones , uses a bullwhip as both a tool and a weapon,  led to an increased interest in whip cracking as a hobby and performance art, as well as a competitive sport. Whip cracking competitions focus on the completion of complex multiple cracking routines and precise target work; although other whips are also used in such competitions. Whereas, in times past, the bullwhip was designed for one basic, main purpose, modern whip makers design their whips for different specific purposes and to suit different throwing styles.
