Awesome position from the spanish GM Paco Vallejo

FM CharlyAZ
The other day I was looking into the games of the spanish GM Francisco "Paco" Vallejo (20th of the world) to publish in my websites, and I stumbled across this awesome position. How come someone can show up such imagination? Before reaching this position Paco had played a great an imaginative middlegame in a Kings indian defense in the white's side, but this.. hmm... no words. Im pretty sure you will remember this position for a long time as how you can play a  game brilliantly without sacrificing your queen.
