Celebration of the feast of Huli in Kabul. The feast, a remnant of pagan cults, lasted the two days of the full moon of February. On the second day, the inhabitants of Kabul would gather at the central square and destroy a gigantic effigy made especially for this festivity. The feast closed as a child, symbol of the new-born god, shot his arrows at the giant's heart.
