Burning Man 2002 Image Gallery - Image 11

And finally... the Man. The statue that has given the festival its name is traditionally burned on the Saturday before Labor Day. During the week it is usually illuminated at night. This year - in compliance with the theme - the Man was standing on top of a large lighthouse (which also got burned on Saturday).
There were also three strong green lasers installed in the lighthouse. The laser beams marked the 90°, 180° and 270° axis of the camp and we were very thankful for that because they often helped us to regain orientation when we got lost (which is fairly easy at Burning Man).
