Santa Fe has a terrific tradition of burning Zozobra (Old Man Grief) every year. This giant puppet has moving arms and burns completely to the ground, taking people's sorrows with it.

    Love this one Cynthia. When I first saw it I thought straight away that it was going to be from the "Burning Man" festival in the Black Rock desert, USA. ...Well done again. I like your work.

    it's perfect for the theme... really good shot.. so meaningful for a latin tradition. we have a similar tradition in Italy and more properly in Emilia Romagna as well as it's better shown in Fellini's movie: Amarcord.

    My vote!!!
