A woman looks at a Falla, a gigantic sculpted structure of cardboard and wood which humorously portrays relevant current events and personalities, caricaturizing French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni during preparations for the Fallas Festival, on March 15, 2010 in Valencia.

The Fallas will be burned in the streets of Valencia on March 19, 2010, as a tribute to St. Joseph, patron saint of the carpenters' guild.
