"Dressing my Queen" - la Ofrenda 2013
20 March 2013 @ 12:27

This year the title of the "Ofrenda" was “Vistiendo a mi Reina”, a beautiful spectacle, which lasts for two days. During these two days, Sunday 17th and Monday 18th, around 100,000 “falleros” and “falleras” set off on their traditional procession, coordinated like clockwork, to hand in bouquets of carnations to the Virgin Mary beside Valencia's Cathedral. Each Falla is designated a colour of flowers according to their position in the procession and the design of the Virgin’s shawl, normally white or red. This year the shawl was designed once again by Marisol Burgos. As the falleros arrive to hand in their flowers a synchronised team of 38 dressers collect the bouquets and almost automatically start fixing them to the framework of the shawl.
 
50,000 bouquets later, the result is this :
