A picture taken on March 19, 2013 shows a Falla, a gigantic sculpted structure of cardboard and wood which humorously portrays relevant current events and personalities, caricaturing elephant-headed Hindu god Lord Ganesha being dismantled after a man tried to immolate himself in front of the structure in Valencia. The Fallas will be burned in the streets of Valencia today, as a tribute to St Joseph, patron saint of the carpenters' guild.
