The Burning Man festival is influenced by ten basic principles including radical inclusion, community cooperation, and radical self-expression, radical self-reliance, gifting and decommodification, and leaving no trace. It encourages extensive experimentation in community and art, the results being absolutely revolutionary and sweeping.
Here is Part II of the amazing pictures from Instagram, of revels that visited Black Rock City and celebrated the festival, letting you know what you missed!!
Red planet, by Cirque ~ cthelamb
This piece of artwork was truly full of emotions. What you can't see in this photo is a stand of buttons. Each button tells a story of one of the heads. Each head tells a story of what they miss most about life. It reminded me of the small things in life that make me happy. What would you miss most if you only had your head? ~ searchingoutadventure
