If you haven't experienced Burning Man, I recommend you do so. This shot is from '96.

This year the man was 30 feet tall or more, on top of a "pedestal" of three stories. Fireworks and a propane bomb (which produced an immense "Hollywood" explosion) really got him burning. Population peaked at 53,000. The week defies description and was one of the most incredible experiences of my life.
