Fallas - Valencia

Some of the scultures were really beautiful - it was amazing to think that they were literally made to be burnt. The one of the girl in the pink dress was pretty enough to stop us in our tracks, as we were headed elsewhere. There were pretty silver glitter patterns on her dress, and the birds above her head were attached by the smallest link possible. Truly amazing. Many of them have satirical themes, and this one even included a mock of the Spanish Prime Minister!
