15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Each year, the city of Valencia, Spain celebrates the Falles Festival, the main element of which is enormous sculptures that are fabricated to exist for the one week of Falles. They are all burnt to ashes on the final night. Several hundred of these sculptures dot the city during the week. This is one of them. The theme is unusual and the meaning slightly obscure, but it is perfectly executed.
