Burning Man 2007

Crude Awakenings consists of a tall, revered oil derrick, maybe 100 feet tall or so (complete with observation platform), and nine 30 foot tall figures approaching it in homage. This art installation was rescheduled from a Friday 9:45pm and ended up burning at 12:30am Sunday morning (following the burning of the Man at 9pm Saturday).
