Only two categories of Ninots to go until you get to find out who will spared from the flames! Today: First Category, and they're quite a bit more elaborate than most of the previous ones...
I found this first one to be slightly creepy, but then the painter Francisco Goya and many of his works are creepy!
|Ninot Hoguera Calvo Sotelo. Artista: Francisco José Santonja Peni|
Now this one has a very different style:
|Ninot Hoguera Hoguera Carolinas. Artista: Federico Ferrer García|
A very elegant sea goddess, and the critters with her are beautiful! I love these two:
Here's the mayor of Alicante again (blond), dressed in greenery and flowers (I think this is going to be a recurring motif for her throughout the Hogueras). I don't know who the other two are...
|Ninot Hoguera Diputación-Renfe. Artista: Paco Juan Navarro|
The ninots infantiles are as cute as ever!
The Hunchback of Notredame anyone?
|Ninot H.Infantil Diputación-Renfe. Artista: Vicente Almela Caballé|
This Bellea is crying over a ninot about to be put to the flames:
|Ninot H.Infantil Los Ángeles. Artista: Francisco Gisbert Picó|
I'm going to have go visit this little shepherd when he's set up, he'll be only a few blocks from my house!
|Ninot H.Infantil Avenida Costablanca Entreplayas. Artista: Juan M. Castelblanqué Pérez|
Father Time again, in the form of the god Kronos:
|Ninot H.Infantil Baver - Els Antigons. Artista: allos y Sanabria|
yummm... have to wait another month or two until they're ripe enough to eat. ;o)
Tomorrow the "top dogs", the Ninots from the Hogueras de Categoría Especial.
