There’s awesome New Years Eve tradition in Ecuador where a whole bunch of talented artists built big paper and wooden sculptures called “años viejos,” or “old years” in English. The sculptures depict all kinds of things, like the Hulk above, as well as Smurfs, dinosaurs, Shadow the Hedgehog, whatever your heart desires, really. Then, they all get lit on fire to bid farewall to the past year. Fortunately, before everything was torched, Photographer Ricardo Bohorquez got a bunch of pictures from the celebration in Guayaquil and the sculptures are stunning.
