媽祖 - mazu goddess of the empty sea - burning man 2016

Mazu, Goddess of the Empty Sea, is the Chinese patron goddess who protects seafarers, such as fishermen and sailors.­

She is holding a small "Man" in her hands!

Procession of the Mazu crew, an all-Chinese camp with amazing art and a Brazilian drum marching band.­

The members of the Mazu camp were all Chinese, mostly from Taiwan, with some coming from Hong Kong and Mainland China (PRC, aka People's Republic of China).­
