Fallas 2010: Na Jordana – 7th Place

Na Jordana’s monument impressed most in the evening hours, when its haunted mansion and creepy figures were lit up and given an extra air of spookiness.

The motto this year was “Pelqueveigesticboig”, which I’m not even going to try and translate. Na Jordana is most well-known for its sense of humor. Consistent front-runners for the prize rewarding wit and ingenuity, they took it home again this year. Their monument was dedicated to insanity, a theme which provides ample comic opportunity. Dancing pigs and elephants atop a street light, a huge cow dragging her udders across the ground, and the highlight: Dr. Jeckyll’s conversion into Mr. Hyde.

7th place is probably a disappointment for the Na Jordana commission, but their monument was a lot of fun, and they should be proud of it. It’s become one of the monuments we most look forward to.

    Hi! Fantanstic photos, again, thanks!

    I don’t know if you don’t know how or you just don’t want to translate de motto, but it’s something like “IseeImcrazy” or less literal: “thinkImcrazy”.

    Na Jordana was in the 80’s and 90s one of the best fallas, and they are always de nice falla. Convebte were the rich & posh people and Pilar a bit haughty. Check the Na Jordana location before the 90s, they used to place de falla here: http://maps.google.es/?ie=UTF8&ll=39.479583,-0.379865&spn=0,0.003449&t=h&z=18&layer=c&cbll=39.479615,-0.379979&panoid=-UMZg6pPeym9cfqQ0ZCBKQ&cbp=12,102.8,,0,-29.57 Crazy!!!!: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_-gsPyj6gBNY/Sag6HKQwb4I/AAAAAAAAC8A/AjFFrAeuBcA/s400/Vte,+Agulleiro-na+Joardana1980%29+copia.jpg
