The huge black stones of the Inuksuk altar in the Temple,

“Inukshukis an Inuit word meaning image of a person’s spirit, often used as navigation aids.­ These structures are composed of stacked rocks in a human form.­ Their traditional meaning is ‘you are on the right path.­ The altar is made out of black igneous basalt stone.­

The Temple of Whollyness was designed by artist Gregg Fleishman and built by Gregg, Syn and Lightning along with the Otic Oasis crew.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
