Las Fallas

The Las Fallas celebration dates back to the Middle Ages when excess winter supplies were torched in an equivalent to a spring cleaning. Today's rendition takes a more grandiose approach, paying homage to Spain's history and culture with spectacular displays of pyrotechnics.
My illustration of Justice and Liberty was turned into a 10 foot statue and featured among many pieces of art at the celebration. 
Of course it would have been nice if they asked me for permission and sent a few images. These I found just by chance.
